“Uh-oh!” Says Bill Gates

Bill Gates might have been scratching his head, thinking of better solutions to this Microsoft’s crisis. Internet Explorer share slips below 90 percent, with Mozilla Firefox gradually ‘taking back the web’.

The below article is taken from CNN.com, with part of the article taken out to save space:

NEW YORK (AP) — Microsoft Corp.’s share of the U.S. browser market has slipped below 90 percent as the Firefox browser continues to grow in popularity, according to independent tracking by WebSideStory.

Firefox, an open-source browser collectively developed by the Internet community under the Mozilla Foundation, had a 6.8 percent share as of April 29, an increase from 3.0 percent since WebSideStory began tracking Firefox separately in October.

Other browsers based on the Mozilla code, including America Online Inc.’s Netscape, had a 2.2 percent share, while Microsoft’s Internet Explorer share was 89 percent, a drop from 95 percent in June.

Outside the United States, Germany is among the leading adopters of Firefox, with a 23 percent share, compared with 69 percent for Internet Explorer.

Microsoft is strong in Asia, with Internet Explorer commanding a share of 94 percent in Japan and 98 percent in China.

Looks like Bill Gates is facing a strong enemy with great potential – it is not as vulnerable to spywares and adwares to Internet Explorer, and with it’s very inspiring slogan – “Take back the web”, it poses a great threat to Internet Explorer’s monopoly over Internet browsers over the world.

I’m using Mozilla Firefox, so those Internet Explorer supporters might as well label me as a traitor. Okay, anything. What Internet browser are you using?
