"One of the favorite activities of journalists, bloggers, and
other putters-of-things-in-print is to declare the impending doom
and/or death of this or that. We won't be engaging in the practice
today, but we will happily report that the Browser Wars are alive
and well, and continuing to take a toll on the market leader.
"This month's market share statistics, as collected by
NetApplications' NetMarketShare service, paint an
increasingly-familiar picture of the continued growth of diversity
in the browser market. Firefox, which has been growing steadily
over the past several years, gained more than a quarter of a
percentage point in March — a figure that may seem small, but
considering the billion-plus users of the internet, represents
millions of additional users. That increase brings Firefox's share
to 24.52%, within a mere half a percent of controlling one-fourth
of the global browser market.
"Google's Chrome gained steadily as well, coming in up 0.52% to
top out at 6.13% — not bad for a browser that seized a full
1% of the market in its first twenty-four hours. The other two
major contenders, Safari and Opera, posted 0.2% and 0.02% gains,
respectively, to claim a combined 7% of the market."
