updated 05:40 pm EDT, Tue April 4, 2006

Safari No. 3 browser's open-source Firefox browser has grabbed 10 percent of the Web browser market. Data released yesterday by Web audience-measurement firm show that just over 10 percent of users use the Firefox browser, up almost 2.5 percent from from February. Microsoft's Internet Explorer led all browsers with 84.7 percent of users in March, while Apple's Safari browser was third with 3.2 percent. Computerworld reports that "in the past year, Firefox has gained 3.3 percent share while introducing Version 1.5 of the browser with improved features. Internet Explorer has lost 3.9 percent as users wait for Internet Explorer 7, which boasts improved features and security and is due out this fall." The report says that Netscape was the fourth most-popular Web browser, with 1.05 percent of the market, followed by Opera with 0.54 percent and Mozilla with 0.34 percent.
