ABSTRACT
This column points out that Mozilla and Firefox open source web browsers have grabbed a significant share from Microsoft's Internet Explorer, even though IE still commands a 92.9 percent share. Geoff Johnston, analyst at WebSideStory, sees forces at work that recall IE's late-1990s knockout of Netscape. What really turned the tide for IE then was that IE 5.0 was better than Netscape 4.0, and now early adopters of Firefox are reaching the same conclusion about Firefox. Firefox has been downloaded more than 7.5 million times. Whether that market extends to the corporate level is another question, but Johnston believes there is always a chance of Firefox making workplace inroads.
