kroxx sent us a link to's latest browser usage share figures, which report that Mozilla has a 1.8 percent global usage share. This makes it the fourth most popular browser after Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 6, 5.5 and 5.

That depends on if they are using page impressions (likely) or unique IPs.

If you use the search bar, then you don't go to the google homepage, so mozilla has one less page impression per search. It is also likely you are better at searching the net, so won't look at as many pages of result or try combinations of keywords as IE users.

However, mozilla users will probably make more searches than IE users and will probably surf the net for longer.

BTW When telling other people to look at their own statistics, get them to make sure their site works in all browsers first. If it doesn't, then people using browsers it doesn't work for will get to the homepage and give up.
