According to the latest web metrics stats from Net Applications, Firefox continues to make significant gains on IE. Firefox now enjoys over 23% of the browser market share. That is a significant portion of the market and it shows that people are becoming more aware of their options. Over the next 3 years the browser will by far and away become the most significant application on the computer – if it is not the case already.

It is suspected that within 11 months time it will be surpassed by Google’s Chrome browser, which already has almost 3% of the market share.
