Mozilla Browsers Gains on IE

Saturday July 10th, 2004

Anonymous writes in with a link to a story on PC World.com talking about how the recent IE security vulnerabilities have started to impact current browser marketshare. It goes on to state that Mozilla/Netscape browsers share of the market according to WebSideStory has gone up 26% in the last month, gaining almost an entire percentage point overall, with IE losing 1 percent of its share. It attributes this to people trying out Mozilla based browsers because of concerns for security, and points out, "Once people start examining the features of Mozilla versus Internet Explorer instead of looking at a brand name... I think they'll see there's a lot more value."

.... of what's benn going on for at least 6 months. Read the Press Box section of onestat.com ( <http://www.onestat.com/html/aboutus_pressbox.html> ) and you'll see that IE has been losing market shareto Mozilla at least since the beginning of the year. With the recent security announcements and FireFox 1.0 on the horizon, I don't doubt that IE usage will drop below 90% by the end of the year.
