Tim O’Reilly, for whom I have great respect, has a great post on

O’Reilly radar discussing a breakdown of visitors by browsers they are


Brief summary

This year

Internet Explorer: 54.66%

Firefox: 35.08%

Last year

Internet Explorer: 75.53%

Netscape: 19.89%

The verdict is clear – Firefox is gaining a ton of momentum and there is no sign of slowing down. Hats off!

Just wanted to point out that Firefox is more secure than IE. I read somewhere that IE is embedded in the OS, whereas FF runs on top of the OS. I’m unsure what that means technically, can anyone please elaborate?
