Recent stats show Firefox use has soared to 11 per cent while

Internet Explorer slips to 85 per cent. Safari is the third most popular browser after Internet Explorer and
Firefox with 1.75 per cent of users, followed by Opera at 0.77 per cent
and Netscape at 0.26 per cent. 

Safari is also in growth mode on the Mac as IE usage on Mac tumbles.

It also looks like users of Internet Explorer on Mac computers are switching to Apple’s Safari because the global usage share is still growing.

Why the continued growth for FireFox? A robust feature set that is growing at a rapid clip is a primary driver. Innovation is alive and well in the FireFox product, and consumers are taking notice.
