Firefox claws 20% market share

Mozilla's Firefox climbed above 20% market share for two weeks last month, but ended October just under the milestone, a web metrics has said.

An article in Computerworld (US) said that during two separate weeks last month, Firefox exceeded 20% share, according to Net Applications. For the week ending October 5, the open-source browser averaged exactly 20 percent, while for the week ending October 26, Firefox accounted for 20.06 percent of the browsers used to connect to the thousands of sites Net Applications monitors for clients.

That month, Firefox lost ground because of the introduction by Google of its own browser, Chrome. Firefox has now regained what share it lost, and more.
