Mozilla Gains on IE

Study shows Microsoft has lost a percentage of market share to open source browser.

Robert McMillan, IDG News Service
Friday, July 09, 2004

A series of highly publicized security vulnerabilities found in Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser may be having an effect on the browser's market share, according to data compiled by WebSideStory, a San Diego Web metrics company. Over the last month, Internet Explorer's share of the browser market dropped by 1 percent, the first noticeable decline since WebSideStory began tracking the browser market in late 1999.

"It's the first time that we've seen a sustained trend downward for them," said Geoff Johnston, an analyst with WebSideStory. "We have a very steady trend. It's been about a month, and every day we have a steady incremental change."

Not sure if it was in the article that you linked, but one of the net metrics companies said that every weekend there is a small surge in alternate browser traffic by people who use Moz, Safari, Opera at home, but have to use IE at work. How many people work at MS? :)

I read two articles.... IIRC, domestically, it went from 95% to 94% and internationally from 94% to 93%.

I am actually curious to see what Longhorn has in store with regards to web browsing. Anyone here a beta-tester?

I hope to be long off of MS when Longhorn comes out. Linux here i come, but until then i guess I'm stuck with XP so might as well use Mozilla. I hope this forces MS to take it's browser seriously and try to offer decent upgrades.
