"While Microsoft lost some browser market share in 2006, by the third quarter it seems to have stopped the rapid advance of Firefox. The delayed release of IE 7 could be a bad omen for its market share, but on the positive side, Microsoft has announced that when IE 7 is released it will be distributed as a 'Live Update' that will be tagged as a security release," the white paper says.
