An article in eWeek.com called Firefox Builds on Its Success gives a few facts and figures on the growth of Firefox. It's zoomed past the 75 million download mark, and should reach the 100,000,000 mark by early October. It's got almost 12% share of the browser market in the US and in Europe is up to almost 15%, which I think is excellent news.

Having said that, it's still got a long way to go. I was speaking at an event the other night and took my laptop along with me. The technician who was plugging it into their network looked at Firefox as I started it up and had no clue what it was. I spent 5 minutes or so running her through the basics and she went off to download a copy. But what interested me was that she didn't know about it in the first place. Her problem or Firefox's? Both, I suspect.
