Firefox is losing momentum

The Mozilla Foundations Firefox browser has gained one percentage point of market share in five months, compared to the one-point-per-month gains after its release a year ago according to recent reports.

According to WebSideStory (a web analytics firm) the browsers once-strong surge against Microsoft Internet Explorer is showing signs of losing momentum. WebSideStory released stats that showed Firefox has crept up from Aprils 6.75 percent to Septembers 7.86 percent, a single percentage point gain in five months. During the first few months after its November, 2004, release, Firefox was adding another point each month.

Both Microsoft and Mozilla are planning to release updates to Internet Explorer (to v7) and Firefox (to v1.5) before the end of the year. Its expected that these releases wont change the stats too much simply because Firefox fans are extremely loyal. The saga continues....;)
