Firefox Gains on Internet Explorer
According to IDG the alternate Web browser bumped its market share to 8.71%
The BlogDog and I have extolled the virtues of Firefox before on this site and it is a story that we will continue to follow. We realize you cannot get rid of Internet Explorer completely but we can suggest you make Firefox your default and use Internet Explorer only when visiting sites that require it.
It's actually surprising that Microsoft hasn't updated its browser in years. I hear that the next release of the Microsoft Operating System code named Longhorn will have an updated browser. I look forward to seeing how many of the innovations found in Firefox will end up in Longhorn. The FUD factor aside, it will be high praise for Firefox when the best features from it are welded onto the bloated Microsoft browser.
