Internet & Networking And so Firefox continues its march into Europe. It is no secret that alternative browsers are much more popular in Europe than they are in North America, and recent statistics by StatCounter confirm that Firefox 3.0 has actually surpassed Internet Explorer 7, making it the most popular browser in Europe.

Not only numbers but facts

In the real worl, the world out there and not this of numbers says that firefox is *really* growing and so does linux.

Let me explain: no so long ago, say 2-3 years I never saw a single computer/laptop with firefox and/or linux installed on it and everyone that knew I wasn't using Microsoft but Linux/FreeBSD thought I was a complete geek. They still think I am although the trend has changed: I see people in college with linux, home computers using firefox as browser (even with linux!) and, the *really* good news is that I've seen some companies/shops working with linux (usually Red Hat based distros).

I'm not claiming for the Opensource dominance but to free choice! Once the world has realised that there's not only Microsoft on software products things will improve a lot!

Just my two cents...
