Into the Fire
Just to show how much of an impact Firefox is making, here's some browser statistics for this month from a couple of websites that I maintain:
|MS Internet Explorer||86.6%|
|MS Internet Explorer||81.0%|
Keep in mind that (unlike this site), these are not the websites typically visited by a large proportion of
early adopters where Firefox percentages have been seen to be much larger.
The days of IE6 holding back the development of the web will last for a while longer yet, but the success of Firefox means it'll be years rather than decades. This is good news for all alternative browsers out there.
