Firefox Browser Takes Market Share From Microsoft's IE

"Microsoft's stranglehold on the browser market continues to loosen, a Dutch Web monitoring company said Tuesday as it released new numbers that show the open-source Firefox making inroads.

According to OneStat.com, an Amsterdam-based Web metrics firm, Microsoft's Internet Explorer still rules the browser roost with a 88.9 percent usage share, but that number's down a full five points since May.

The decline in Internet Explorer was picked up entirely by Mozilla's browsers, particularly its stand-alone Firefox, which just released in version 1.0 two weeks ago. In that time, more than 5.6 million copies of Firefox have been downloaded from the Web."

Sweet. All those numbnuts that designed sites that work with nothing but Internet Explorer because it was the 'only browser' (in their little minds), suck my balls.
