Ssage of Firefox in early December in the United States has grown by more than a third according to a research firm. Compared to early November there is a gain of 34 percent which is a lot more than the increase of 13 percent last month.
Overall Firefox now has a share of about 4.06% compared to 3.03% last month. Internet Explorer is ofcourse still the big one with a market share of 91.8%.
"Firefox's stated goal of gaining 10 percent of the market over the next year no longer seems unattainable," Schulman added.
Virtually all Firefox's growth was at IE's expense, said WebSideStory's data, which noted a 1.09 percent drop in Internet Explorer's share during the same period. Since early June, WebSideStory's numbers have tracked a 3.7 percent drop in IE's domestic usage share, with a nearly-identical rise in the use of Mozilla's browsers.
