Firefox making Microsoft IE to lose

Microsoft Internet Explorer is continuing to lose share in the browser market, as its much-smaller competitors chisel at its dominant position, new Web site visitor data shows.

&to=http:// english.pravda.ru/science/19/94/379/13643_computer.html' target=_blank>Microsoft's browser has dropped by 1.8 percentage points over the past three months to 93.7 percent of the market, according to data provided Wednesday by Web analytics vendor WebSideStory Inc. The latest data comes after IE's market share fell a percentage point between June and July in the wake of a series of high-profile security issues—the first time WebSideStory had recorded an IE drop.

The benefactors of Microsoft's slight, but sustained, decline since June have included the open-source browsers from the Mozilla Foundation and a commercial competitor from Opera Software ASA, eWeek reported.

According to the New Zealand Herald, someone's forgotten to tell Ben Goodger and his team at the Mozilla Foundation because this Kiwi software engineer is taking market share from &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/printed.html?news_id=12818' target=_blank>Internet Explorer (IE) with Firefox, the browser that's smaller yet smarter than anything else available.

The code names for the previous versions of Firefox include Three Kings, Royal Oak, One Tree Hill and Greenlane.
