MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jun 14, 2005 (United Press International via COMTEX) – The Firefox browser of California’s Mozilla Foundation, which competes with Microsoft Corp.s’ Internet Explorer, gained market share last month

Firefox’s market share rose to 8 percent in May, up from 7.38 percent in April, while Internet Explorer’s market share fell 0.77 percent to 87.23 percent, IDG News Service reported Tuesday.

Firefox has been consistently boosting its market share by 0.5 percent to 1 percent each month.

“The message for Web masters is clear: Make sure your Web site is compatible with Firefox, because more and more of your visitors are using it to go to your Web site,” said Dan Shapero of, an Aliso Viejo, Calif., maker of applications for monitoring and measuring Web site usage.

I wonder when/if Firefox will plateau?
