    "Firefox continues to chip away at Microsoft Internet Explorer's market share, a Web metrics firm said Tuesday as it released usage figures showing that the upstart open-source Firefox accounts for nearly 7 percent of the browsers used in the U.S."

    Score! Finally Firefox has some numbers down. May not be around upwards of 80% where it very much should be, IMO, but it's progressing.

    The more Firefox usage grows, the less spyware we all have to clean up. :good:

    thats only the US, how about Europe? americans aren't all that "educated" about computers, i know a couple kids in my school who forget how to copy or paste. hopefully Europe has around a 20%, since they are much more knowing of computers

    I've literally convinced someone that their motherboard was in their fireplace. You're right, american's don't know much about computers.

    hopefully by the next year or so firefox will double it's users.

    "In Germany, for instance, 22.6 percent of Internet users hit the Web with Firefox."
    "Japan, on the other, hand, has essentially ignored Firefox. WebSideStory's numbers show that only 2.8 percent of that country's users run Firefox..."

    Go germans, Japan..two words...come ooooon! come ooooon!
