    PCWorld.com Year-End Stats: IE7, Firefox, Vista, Mac


    2007 has seen the first full year of competition between Internet Explorer 7--Microsoft's first sorta-modern browser--and the upstart known as Firefox. IE7 has steadily grown in usage over the year, going from around 24 percent usage to 37 percent today. But despite some predictions that it would strike a mighty Microsoftian blow against Firefox, it hasn't. Firefox started the year with 25 percent usage and ended it with 36 percent; it's still growing, and as IE6 users have moved on, they've apparently been nearly as likely to jump to Firefox as they have to opt for Microsoft's latest browser.
    Nothing surprising here. IE is still the #1 browser, and Windows the number one operating system, while the others all try to catch up.

    sounds right to me. I only use IE at work, and when using Microsoft sign-in sites.
