The page <title>, which contains a typo, does not lie in agreement with the
article's title which is: "Global usage share Microsoft Internet Explorer
has slightly decreased according to OneStat.com"
In case it matters at all, see a poll:
IE 7 won?t stop Firefox growth say users
Wednesday, 10 May 2006
| A poll of internet users indicates the prevailing view is that the
| Mozilla Firefox browser will continue to take market share off
| Microsoft, despite the impending release of its vastly improved
| Internet Explorer 7 browser.
| An iTWire poll taken over 40 hours, asked readers the question,
| "Will IE 7 stop Firefox from taking marketshare from Microsoft?"
| Of 215 respondents, 175 (81.4% voted No, while just 40 (18.6%) voted
I wouldn't describe this as a reliable study, but it is still something which
alleviates worries that IE7 could lead to an IR rebound.
