According to data released by StatCounter.com, Mozilla’s Firefox 3.5 is now the most popular web browser. It just passed Microsoft’s Internet Explorer version 7.

This is a landmark. It was just a couple of years ago that Internet Explorer dominated the world of browsing the Internet; it was used by more than 90 percent of people who went online. Of course that was mainly because it came packaged with Windows, so anyone who bought a computer automatically had it. But you can have as many Internet browsers as you want on your computer and gradually people began to move toward something better. Even Joy’s sister, who is totally baffled by computers, now uses Firefox for email and web browsing. So it’s still true, that if you make a better product, you will usually win out.
