No longer just a little player, Firefox has become a very popular browser around the world and has been adopted by individuals and businesses alike. Mozilla's browser is nearing another milestone, with it falling just a tad short of a 20% market share.

According to recent statistics, the average take of Firefox for October was 19.97%, a small increase over months prior. That gain seems to come directly at the expense of Internet Explorer, which dropped from 71.52% to 71.27%, and continues to follow a trend in which Firefox is making small gains and IE is suffering small losses. With IE7 failing to wow the world and IE8 still in beta, Mozilla has a definite chance to hit that 20% soon.
