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%.

Jeebus, asa, you sound just like someone from capitol hill. "I know what's good for you people, and you're going to get it, whether you like it or not!"

Ask yourself this, asa: Why is mozilla being written? What is it's goal? If the goal is just to have a little developer circlejerk, hey, be my guest, ignore user demand all you want. But if you actually want to make mozilla a non-niche product then you're going to have to realise that there are more interests at stake here than just those of the developers.

Bah, why am I posting this anyway, it's like talking to a wall. Mozilla is dieing as far as I'm concerned. Sad.
