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%.

You might want to scope out the new Phoenix release (0.5). It actually loads faster for me than IE6 on my 1.3 Ghz Win2k laptop. I hear what you're saying about slower machines--my wife is stuck on a PI-233 until we buy our first iMac. ;-) IE loads much quicker than Moz, and decidedly so over Phoenix, too. Phoenix seems to be catching up though--last night I was using it on the PI without any extreme performance problems.
