How quickly is the Mozilla Organization's Firefox browser gaining steam? Consider this factoid from's own stats: Firefox only became a shipping product a little over two months ago--and it already accounts for over eighteen percent of traffic to our site.

Internet Explorer 6.0, meanwhile, remains by far the most common browser among our visitors, with about 65 percent of traffic...but that's down about 10 points since the start of September. Given Microsoft's track record of amazingly-close-to-100% market shares in desktop operating systems, office suites, and browsers, it's remarkable how quickly Firefox has become a genuine contender.

Anyone care to guess if Firefox will just continue to eat away at IE's dominance? Or will it hit a glass ceiling anytime soon? Competing with a product that comes pre-installed on the vast majority of the planet's computers isn't easy.

And another question: Will Microsoft continue to sit back and watch IE falter, or will it come up with some sort of browser upgrade before Longhorn (currently due in 2006) finally shows up?
