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%.

With mozilla and its kin making a slow march towards 5% we'll soon hear more and more about the "mozilla tax" - the cost to business of ignoring mozilla.

How much is the sales tax in your state or province? Do you think about it before you make a purchase or does it absolutely never enter your mind? How much is 5% of your income? Could you toss that aside each payday without batting an eye?

5% isnít that small. 1% isnít that small either!! The combined yearly salaries of the entire e-marketing staff for my employer do not represent 1% of company revenue. It's no surprise that a simple cost-to-risk analysis guaranteed mozilla-compatibility as a requirement for all future e-marketing projects.
