Firefox slowly nibbling away IE's marketshare

Posted on Saturday, July 16 2005 @ 12:15:53 CEST by

NetApplications today announced through its monthly Web site traffic analysis that FireFox is on the verge of reaching 10% market share, a significant milestone in its bid to steal thunder away from Microsoft's de-facto industry standard browser, Internet Explorer.

FireFox market share for browser usage grew to 8.71% during the month of June up from 8% in May. Meanwhile, Microsoft dipped to 86.56% in June down .67% from May. Most other browsers experienced little change during the same time period.

"Microsoft continues to lose .5 to 1% of market share each month, which has been steady throughout 2005," noted Dan Shapero, Chief Operating Officer. "With its continued momentum, combined with significant media attention, FireFox has steadily increased its user-base each and every month. FireFox is starting to tempt the masses with it strong word of mouth referrals and is expected to gain significant traction once it gains acceptance by large corporations."

Browser market share in June 2005:
Microsoft Internet Explorer - 86.56%
FireFox - 8.71%
Safari - 1.93%
Netscape - 1.55%
Opera - 0.59%
Mozilla - 0.58%
Other - 0.07%
