Firefox, the popular alternative to Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser is picking up steam worldwide, gaining one percent in market share in the past six months.
And judging by the numbers, courtesy of OneStat, Mozilla swiped that market share directly from Microsoft, which was down about one percent worldwide. The Beast of Redmond still controls just under 85 percent of the worldwide browser market, though.
