<a href=””>The Register</a> posted that Mozilla Foundation’s Firefox browser has reached the 400 Million download mile mark. Wow! That’s not bad for just 3 years time! Internet Explorer is at about 64% now and Firefox is about 17%. While it’s still primarily “the geek’s browser”, most of us “geeks” have turned our families and friends (and kids) into Firefox users as well, which is probably why the percentage went up about 6% from 2006-7. Internet Explorer works fine, and it now has browsing tab, but the 3rd party plugins, add-ons, plugins, and XUL applications are what sets it far apart from IE. And – it’s multi-platform working on Mac, Windows, and every flavor of Linux as well! Good job Firefox team, you had a great year. Here’s to next year being even better!
