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%.

Actually, Mozilla is - well, would - be far better suited for corporate users than NS, for a couple of reasons: all of the sources directly available and inspectable for security flaws, no unnecessary spam links, no IM, better support, and more. So targetting Mozilla more towards corporate users - of which there are a lot - would certainly help greatly to extend the user base of Gecko-based browsers.
