HTMLfixIT has been pushing Firefox for a long time now, as have many other such sites. The good news is that the quest for a better browser is working. have an article detailing how both w3schools and Cnet themselves have seen Open Source browsers like Firefox jump in usage from 8 to 18 percent this year alone. Both sites are very popular and are good indicators for how the Firefox revolution is going. Although it should be noted that both sites (and HTMLfixIT itself, which also shows similar figures) are more tech related sites, and therefore the visitors would be more informed then the general net population. Still, it’s fantastic news.

There is an interesting quote from that article, from Martin Taylor, the general manager of Microsoft’s platform strategy:

Firefox isn’t yet a focus for Martin Taylor, the general manager of Microsoft’s platform strategy, who is in charge of Microsoft’s response to Linux and open-source software. But he suspects it will come under discussion in coming months.

“Firefox is creeping up, getting more attention,” Taylor said in an interview on Wednesday.

Hmm, I guess that means Microsoft plans to do a smear campaign ? who knows, and who cares? With Internet Explorers security record, I doubt anyone would believe them anyway.

So, now to plug the best browser on the net. Get your free copy of Firefox here, and learn how to really enjoy the net. Get Firefox!

First it was the US government telling people that it is a good idea to ditch Internet Explorer in favour of a more secure alternative, then Microsoft’s security boss accidently revealed that he had Mozilla Firefox on his PC, and now those responsible for German government online security are also recommending users change away from Internet Explorer for their own security.

Wow, at this rate even newbie’s will get the message soon. It is slowly happening though, checking the browser stats at W3schools shows that Mozilla usage has risen from 8 to nearly 18 percent since the start of the year. The same stats reveal that in that same period, Internet Explorer 6 usage has dropped 3 percentage points and Internet Explorer 5 has dropped by over 6 percentage points. Internet Explorer still has a pretty good lead, but it is eroding as the word gets out.

Up until tonight, whenever I posted a new story on HTMLfixIT, I did so by typing it into my text editor and spell checking it there before pasting the lot into the submission form for articles.

Tonight I came across Spellbound which is a full spell checking extension for Firefox.
It installed flawlessly, I simply selected all the components by ticking the relevant boxes on the spellbound page, and then did the same for a dictionary (choosing Australian in my case.).
