Firefox fanbase reaches new high

“More than 10% of net users are going online with the Firefox browser, show figures from analysis firm One Stat.

The global average of 11.5% is the highest percentage of users that the open source browser has ever reached.

The research also reveals that Americans are the biggest fans of Firefox with 14.1% using it. In the UK 4.9% use it to get around online.

It is thought that continuing news stories about security problems in Internet Explorer are helping to fuel the move away from Microsoft’s program.

In recent months, browsers, toolbars and the technology around them have become the new front line in the war between the web’s biggest companies – Microsoft, Google and Yahoo – to grab and keep hold of users.”
