OpenSourceAdvocate writes: "Industry surveys show that Mozilla holds 1-2 percent of the browser market, and Internet Explorer has the vast majority.

"A Brazilian programmer just released a script to automatically download and install the latest version of Mozilla Firebird, Mozilla Thunderbird, and Gaim on any Windows computer.

"The goal is to increase the internet security via software diversity. Open Source Software is less vulnerable to Windows virus and worms.

"Developers are invited to download, modify and redistribute the source code. (The script is open source and dedicated to the public domain.)"

#10 Did you count the pixels?

Bear in mind that obviously the top of the graph where IE6 places is only around 60%, not 100%.

I measured the pixels for each browser category on the graph, and scaled those numbers to percentages that sum to 100; Mozilla gets about 4.7%, but since the numbers aren't accurate enough for that, I just rounded to nearest %.

Here are the numbers (this probably won't format correctly on these forums, sorry, but you should be able to figure it out):

Pixels Share IE6 94 64% IE5.5 20 14% IE5.0 18 12% Gecko 7 5% NN4 4 3% IE4 3 2% Total 146 100%
