"WebSideStory has published some February 2005 United States
browser usage figures as part of its latest Data Spotlight.
According to the statistics, Mozilla Firefox's growth is slowing.
'Firefox's market share grew just 15 percent in the five weeks
leading up to Feb. 18, 2005, the latest benchmark available. In the
previous six weeks before that, the browser grew at 22 percent
clip. These figures compare with a 34 percent increase between Nov.
5 and Dec. 3, which coincides with the release of Firefox Version
1.0 on Nov. 9.'
"WebSideStory CEO Jeff Lunsford says the slowdown is 'probably
to be expected as we move beyond the early adopter segment...'"
