Firefox Grows To 15% Of U.S. Web Browser Market

Although Internet Explorer maintains dominant market share worldwide, one exception is Germany, where Firefox has almost 40% of the market.

Firefox's share of the Web browser market has surpassed 15% in the United States and 12% globally, according to Web analytics company OneStat.com.

Niels Brinkman, co-founder of OneStat, observes that Firefox usage is growing again after a period of no growth.

Since May, Mozilla Firefox has grown 1.14% in usage globally. Microsoft Internet Explorer has had a 2.12% decline in the past two months. IE's global market share now stands at 83.05%, according to OneStat.

Both Internet Explorer and Firefox are due for significant upgrades shortly. Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 is currently available to users; starting today, Mozilla Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 Release Candidate 1 is available at the Mozilla.org FTP site.

Although Internet Explorer maintains dominant market share around the world, one exception is Germany, where Firefox has almost 40% of the market, according to OneStat.
