Mozilla bounces backs from Chrome challenge

Firefox surpassed a 20% share of the browser market last month, breaking its own records.

The figures, reported by web metrics firm Net Applications, reveal that for two weeks in October the company accounted for 20.6% of all monitored browser traffic.

Despite this, Firefox closed the month with an average traffic share of 19.97%, falling just short of the magic number.

The report will come as good news to Mozilla, which has seen its share bounce back following a half percentage point fall in September, due to the introduction of Google's Chrome browser.

At the contrasting ending of the scale, dominant browser Internet Explorer has seen its share fall 71.52% to 71.27%. The fall marks it out as the browser with the fastest declining market share.

Chrome was also hit by Firefox's gain, with the buzz surrounding its September launch fading, resulting in its share falling to 0.74% from 0.78%.

Indeed the only other browser to to gain during October was Opera, which jumped from 0.69% to 0.75%.
