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 reciently had to use a XP machine that had only IE 6.0, which I never used before and after that experience I cannot believe why anyone would want to use that browser. Becuase you can't load tabs in the background, browsing with IE was *much* slower than Phoenix for me. Not to mention all the security flaws. For instance, I noticed that IE does not seem clear out cookies that expire at the end of the session, even if you log out of Windows and log in again.
