Firefox 3.5 is World's Most Popular Browser

Do you use Firefox 3.5? You and along with most of the web, it seems.

According to statistics provided by TheNextWeb and StatCounter Global Statistics, the world's most popular browser is Firefox 3.5.

Of course, Firefox's lead is only when counting each discrete browser version as a separate entity. With all versions of Internet Explorer moved under the same category, Microsoft is still the leader.

For Mozilla supporters, however, this is still a great milestone.

    I've tried Chrome but I still like Firefox more

    I like Chrome. It's still new, but has a lot of potential. It loads why faster than IE or Firefox. Although, occasionally, I run into websites that are not compatible with it.

    As of right now I'm using Chrome the most, then Firefox. I only use IE to download updates.

    My browser of choice is the very least popular lol

    This makes me happy.

    My browser of choice finished last, as always. Why don't people like Opera? It's the second fastest browser after chrome, way ahead of FF, IE and Safari, it has a ton of nice features like mouse gestures (okay, it can be done in FF as well with add-ons) and so on.
    Still, any sign that people stop using the browser that must not be named makes me happy.

    Spelling is OK, math is still terrible. How is 20 something percent "most of the web?" Is 100% of the web equal to 40% of some unknown quantity?

    It's an apples to oranges comparison anyway. If MS forced updates on IE users like Firefox does, then it would easily have the highest used browser variant.
