"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, 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."
