Firefox catching up with Internet Explorer

Hamburg - Firefox is eroding Internet Explorer's reign as the most popular internet browser. An online study conducted by marketing research firm Fittkau & Maass showed that 38.4 per cent of German-speaking internet users browse either with Firefox version 3.x or 2.x. The Internet Explorer 7.x version accounted for 37.2 per cent of the same group, while the previous version, 6.x, had 16 per cent.

Apple's Safari is used by 3.2 per cent of the 105,000 survey participants. It was followed by Opera with 2.3 per cent and Google Chrome with 0.8 per cent.

Don't worry,once Firefox is at 50%,Microsoft will buy them and rename it ''Internet Foxsplorer"

It's funny, but don't forget that you can't simply "buy" open-source software. If they really bought Mozilla, forks of firefox would soon appear.

Sorry about that, thats my lazy writing i do it ALOT i did mean Firefox 3

Edit. @Campy - I read on a forum that its summin 2do with older versions of Adobe Flash installed on your computer but im not sure, i still hav the same problem even after i un/reinstalled it

i use a script blocking add on for firefox and i get the same error about enabling flash when i dont allow a pages script. sounds like your having the same problem. see if you installed 'No Script' on accident or go to the options and see if you blocked scripts. and of course make sure you have the latest version of flash player installed. i figure you already have it enabled but i wanted to throw it out there just in case
