Internet Explorer 7 has become the second most used internet browser in the U.S., with a marketshare of over 25%. This data comes from WebSideStory, a company used by Microsoft to measure browser usage.
The most used browser in the U.S. is still Internet Explorer 6, data on the third most used browser isn't available but I suppose it's Firefox.
Microsoft says that on January 8th, IE7 had been installed more than 100 million times. This number, and IE7's marketshare, will continue to increase as Microsoft rolls out Windows Vista and the IE7 update for Windows XP.

IE7 is probably already bigger than Firefox right now :p Kinda easy ofcourse, all it takes is an automatic update.

Oh forgot to add this to my comment:
I think Firefox's marketshare will soon drop or stagnate. With computers being updated to IE7 and new PCs being shipped with Windows Vista I guess many people will start using IE again.
