Firefox gaining on Internet Explorer

Rachel Rosmarin reports at Forbes that Mozilla Gains On Microsoft:

Mozilla’s Firefox Web browser continues to burn a path into Microsoft’s house–the PC.

The open source Web browser software is gaining on Microsoft’s (nasdaq: MSFT – news – people ) Internet Explorer, amassing 11.3% of the global browser market, up from 9.5% at the beginning of the year, according to Web traffic tracking from Net Applications. IE’s share slid from 85.3% in January to 83.6% in July.

In the U.S., Firefox’s claim is even larger, with 15.8% in July up from 14.1% at the end of last year, according to Web analytics firm OneStat.

It’s not exactly a water main break, but it seems be a steady leak.
