Mozilla’s baby Firefox is turning 6 today, with a 36% market share to brag about. Six years ago Internet Explorer one of the most used browsers, that is when Firefox was launched and quickly became popular among tech enthusiasts and developers. Now, the browser boasts of more than 1/3rd of the market share.
In the past few years though, Firefox has also had to fend competition from Google Chrome and Opera who have been rising on the popularity charts. With Firefox 4 being delayed till 2011, Mozilla definitely has to buck up its game to extend their stay for several more years to come.
Firefox 4 is a definitely game changer for Mozilla, and hopefully this 6th birthday will give them a boost to get it out of the door as quickly they can. Here is wishing one of the best browsers I have ever used a very Happy 6th birthday. To get some goodies, visit the official Mozilla birthday page.
