Firefox to hit 20% World Market Share in July

According to this article at CNet, Firefox will own 20% of the world’s browser market share in July. There are many reasons for this, but one may that they’ve begun to include a box when installing that asks to make FireFox the default browser.

Matt Astray at C-Net belives that there are two reasons that people have begun to to use Firefox over IE:

  1. It works better (Better security, better performance, better functionality).
  2. It's much more customizable.

The article also states that at one point, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer held 96% of the world’s browser market, and now, they’re down to 80%. Firefox is slowly gaining on the market share.
