Um, you're completely off base here. First of all ie6 browser share is at 18-19%. The subsequent releases (ie7-8) make up the other part of that 62%. Even if we can take it as fact that in 2001 ie6 was 95% of browser share (which we cannot--it was probably ie5 or some sort), then what you're talking about that internet explorer usage has declined 72% in the past eight years, and I would submit that this is significant evidence of the preference of the vast majority of people to Firefox. Considering that a great number of corporations, including the United States federal government still are using ie6, considering that IExplore is the default install on 95% of personal computers, and considering that in order to use firefox you have to 1. connect to the internet 2. know the name of the browser 3. "google" or "get firefox" it and 4. keep changing it back to the default browser every time IEx changes the user back to defaulting to its own, I'd say that firefox isn't the browser that should be worried. Trending at this rate, IE will be a niche browser in the next decade. Although I do tend to like ie8 more than 7 or 6, for me Firefox is MORE compatible with the majority of my websites, including my online banking. Plus I can't stand the fact that they bother me with their "accelerators" crap. I prefer to install my "accelerators" when I needed, not all your pre-loaded crap when I first start up my browser--and I'd wager that most average users feel the same way.
Sir, I do believe you're trolling.
