Firefox Hits 35% Market Share In Europe, 22% Globally
SourceAnalysis – Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8 has been available for 18 days and remains the company’s weakest web browser at launch since version 3. While the software now seems to be close to 4% market share, it appears to be unable to stop the bleeding of other IE versions. Since the beginning of the year, Mozilla’s Firefox has picked up more than half of the users IE lost; the other half went to Apple’s Safari and Google’s Chrome. This trend is evident in new market share numbers published by Net Applications and StatCounter, which show that Firefox hit a new record market share in March.
This is very good news tho,hope to see FireFox rocking once again & hitting heads,false ones like IE.
i think one of the reasons y people feel firefox is better simply coz its much more reliable in terms of security and also the releases have very few bugs which really makes it stand way out of the leagues of IE and others

Memory usage is quite good for an alpha. It scores 94/100 on the Acid3 test.

Taskfox is essentially a feature Mozilla plans for Firefox, and which was inspired by the ubiquity experiment.
