Well this month market share shows Firefox 4 is running on more machines when compared to Internet Explorer 9 and Opera 11.x. Nothing shocking in that as Firefox 4 surpassed IE9’s download count within few hours of public release. And Opera is not so impressive even though they got some amazing features.

Mozilla is nearing to release Firefox 5 in a month of time. It’s time for all these browser vendors to wake up soon and get some other advertising strategies to grab their lost market share. Else Chrome will eat their share soon as it is getting done with some great features in coming versions.
