Mixed feelings about statistics. Good to hear FF is doing well. But to hear it on 1 Apr. is not as funny as it could be on any other day of the year ;)

Same here. And switching to bar view doesn't make me feel better ... ;-)
In bar view, Firefox is still behind IE. Hmm, did I miss something ....?

Indeed. I don't want the April Fool's nonsense on OSNews. Have you ever seen a website make an actually funny April Fool's joke?

Thought so.
