Firefox is King

Posted by jun auza On 7/10/2008
Mozilla Firefox is now the king of all browsers. --At least based on the web traffic data gathered from junauza.com and from a popular tech blog by known Windows Vista fanboy user Jeff Atwood. Firefox tops all other web browsers and most importantly kicked its archrival Internet Explorer out of the highest position.

Here is a screenshot of browser usage share from junauza.com based on the web traffic stats gathered by StatCounter:

Conclusion:
I know that it's not yet safe to conclude that Firefox is already the top web browser on the planet based only on the two traffic stats from two sites. However, I can easily say now that it won't take that long before Firefox will finally and officially be crowned as the king of all browsers.
