,----[ Quote ]
| Janco and the IT Productivity Center have just released their Browser and
| Operating System Market Share White Paper. The major findings are:

| 58.50% versus 65.48% (loss of 6.96%) in August 2007 and 82.99% (loss of
| 24.49%) in August 2005; Firefox has maintained its number 2 browser position
| and now is used by almost 19% (18.94%) of all users; Google Desktop has over
| 4% (4.01%) of the market; and Time Warner made a strategic error in
| abandoning Netscape as users continue to use Netscape even though AOL no
| longer supports it.
