It’s official, everyone; Internet Explorer, at long, long last, is no longer the world’s most popular browser. Its about time.
As originally posted on ZDNet.com, it appears as though Firefox is now used by 21.93% of users, just ahead of Internet Explorer 7’s rapidly declining count of 21.2% and Internet Explorer 8’s tally of 20.33%. I think this deserves a toast. Be right back.

What else is new?
Ok, now that that’s done with, I think I should explain the other reason why Firefox is making headlines as of late. On the 18th, Mozilla released the Firefox 3.6 beta which, while not being an epic, earthshaking release, is still worth mentioning. Here is just a small list of the updates (you can see a full list here):
Just a cool fact, version 3.6 has been nicknamed “Namoroka.”
If you’re still an Internet Explorer user, you’re missing out. A while ago, I had a banner on my site (and by a while ago, I mean, circa April Fools day, 2009) that told you you needed to upgrade your browser to view my site. It sent you to firefox.com. Sneaky, huh?
