Firefox celebrates 400 million downloads

Mozilla claims 145 million people have downloaded the open-source browser in the past year, representing a 56% increase on the year before.

Its growing popularity has seen it take a 28%

share of the European browser market and around 15% of the global market, though as we reported last month the browser still has a problem retaining users. Only around 25% of the people who download Firefox go on to become regular users.

Nonetheless, the figures suggest that the days of Internet Explorer having a stranglehold on the browser market are long gone.
