Firefox Claims A Quarter Usage - Mozilla

According to a post on the official Mozilla blog, about a quarter-million people are running Firefox 3.6 preview version. Also, the chairman of the Mozilla Foundation, Mitchell Baker, echoed same in her personal blog earlier this week that 1-in-4 browser users run Firefox. Firefox has 25% market share, about 330 million users world wide.

Firefox's share growth has fueled Mozilla's ambitions - Mozilla at the weekend updated the beta of Firefox 3.6 to version 2, following the launch of Beta 1 on October 30.

However, Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE), still lead all rivals with 63.3%, while Apple's Safari, Google's Chrome and Opera Software's Opera followed, in that order, with 4.4%, 3.9% and 2.3%, respectively.

The growth of Firefox has had another important effect: bringing standards to the forefront of web development. Mozilla is set to launch Firefox 3.6 release candidate on November 26th, and the final build is expected before the end of the year.
