Firefox Inches Toward 50% Share

For ZDNet, Joe Brockmeier writes Firefox Inches Toward 50%, Safari Holds Steady.

Brockmeier reviewed the statistics from W3Schools, which draws a developer crowd and thus tends to skew more toward Firefox than many sites.

Firefox climbed to 46.4% in February, while the various versions of IE dropped by 1.2% to 43.6%.

Looking at other sites that track browser usage, the numbers for Firefox were lower, but the trend was identical. Firefox and Safari are growing in use share, while MS IE is shrinking every month.

This means the task of developing websites will get easier over time, as the standards become stronger and IE, which ignores many of the web standards, will fade to the point it can be safely ignored.
