    The Netscape Story: From Mosaic to Mozilla

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | The steady rise of Firefox's market share – first, a few percent, then 10%,
    | and now touching 40% in some parts of the world – had a major knock-on
    | effect. Through an agreement with Google that makes the latter's search
    | engine the default home page when the program is installed, and the first
    | option for the search engine box in Firefox, the parent organisation, Mozilla
    | Foundation, is receiving tens of millions of dollars each year in fees. As a
    | result, Mozilla has turned from a struggling project into an incredibly
    | powerful force within open source.

    But wait. It's not possible to measure marketshare of a free product.
    Supposedly all of these "net stats" are incredibly inaccurate.

    Is this now possible to do in the year 2008?
