Report: Firefox Takes IE Browser Share

Usage of Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser has dropped 5 percent since May, while Mozilla's Firefox has catapulted to a 4.58 percent total usage share, according to Web analytics provider OneStat.com. Despite the pressure from its new rival, Microsoft still holds just under 90 percent of the market. The biggest gains were seen in Internet Explorer 6.0, which alone covers 81 percent of global browser usage - a 12 percent increase over May tallies.
