    Firefox passes IE in total usage

    Time for me to gloat. Some of you may still be around when, a few years ago, I said IE was doomed. Sneared and laughed at, my prediction has come true: Firefox is now the dominant browser in Europe.

    I first predicted this when IE's market share was over 90%. Worldwide it's just under 60% today and falling.

    Neither can I.

    Having IE6 go the way the dinosaur is one of the reasons I think people shouldn't be using Windows XP anymore.

    Only now when compared to Firefix, but I don;t recall it happening before, not that I was really paying attention to it.

    Almost 60 percent users are using firefox because of its compatibleness and reliability.

    If people knew how much swearing, grief and gray hairs MSIE has caused (and still causes) web developers, it's market share would drop to 0.

    Mozilla Firefox is the good one. Not very much surprising.
