Firefox 25 Million old

Yesterday Firefox passed the 25 million download milestone. Internet Exploder is now down to between 85-90% market share, depending on which study you read. Microsoft announced this week that they will release a beta IE 7 this summer, reversing their policy to only update Internet Exploder with new versions of windows. The press keeps reporting on the success of Firefox. It looks like the ball is moving and I don’t think Microsoft can do much to stop it.
All I have to say is that I love competition. The web has suffered long enough from Microsoft’s stagnant web browser. If IE drops down to around 60% market share, and stays there, I’ll be happy. I don’t want to see IE get destroyed, but I hate the effects of zero competition. Web standards are ignored, security gets lax, and the general public suffers from a lack of innovation.
