Tyrannosaurus Moz writes: "According to, Mozilla has achieved 1.1% usage, up 0.3% from 0.8% in September. If you count Netscape 7 as Mozilla (it is) then Mozilla-based browsers now control about 1.7% of the Web browser market." Internet Explorer is still the number one browser with a 95% usage share but Mozilla has now overtaken Opera as the third most popular browser, behind Netscape (all versions) with 3%.

I'm all for more Opera users, especially Opera 7 users now that it has better standards support than Mozilla in some areas. When less than 1% of page hits are from Netscape 4 and IE 4, and more than 5% are from Mozilla and Opera, there's going to be a compelling reason to use standards and no compelling reason to bend over backwards to support older or broken browsers. That will mean a better web for everyone.
