FireFox Dominates the Developers
I had to reset my web statistics today because my boss filled up the harddrive on my webserver.  He was backing up our production server onto our staging server (my lowly site only gets the staging server), so when I got into work this morning, I saw some error messages from backups that happend and didn't get through.  I went and checked the drive space on our sever and saw that it was down to just 11MB of freespace.  In a panic, I started to look around for places to free up memory.  The most obvious place was to delete the 50000 some odd site statistics from the database.

To make an already long story shorter, I reset my webstatisics.  My Dynamic AJAX is primarly visited by developers, so when I went to my web statics I was quite pleased to see that the browser statistics look like:
FireFox IE 5.x IE 6.0 IE 7.0 Opera Safari
Hits: 35 Hits: 1 Hits: 13 Hits: 0 Hits: 1 Hits: 0
Percent: 70.00% Percent: 2.00% Percent: 26.00% Percent: 0.00% Percent: 2.00% Percent: 0.00%

as you can see, FireFox dominates that number.  Now this is a fairly small sampling, but it seems that FireFox is picking up speed.  Microsoft really needs to get on the ball and release a new web browser or they will loose all their market share to Mozilla.
