Firefox aims for 30% marketshare by June 2008

Posted on Friday, August 17 2007 @ 02:21:44 CEST by

VNU Net reports Mozilla is hoping to reach a marketshare of 30% with Firefox by June 2008.
Approximately half of those who download Firefox never actually install the application. Another 50 per cent of those who do install the software are counted as active users, according to data posted on a Firefox wiki.

The group plans an abundance of changes. The Firefox icon, for instance, could be accompanied by a text that more clearly indicates its purpose, and the developers will attempt to place it more prominently on the user's desktop, the Windows quick launch bar or the dock in OS X.

The group also plans to change the way it prompts users to set Firefox as their default browser. The change is supposed to make the prompt look "nicer".

Other suggested enhancements include a support website, the introduction of a feature that allows users to scroll through browser tabs with previews, resembling how applications switch in modern operating systems.

According to a Mozilla Wiki, the group aims for a 10 per cent monthly growth rate for Firefox and a 30 per cent market share by June 2008. The application is currently gaining users are a rate of 3.7 per cent per month.
