I’m a really big fan and user of Firefox 3 so it was no surprise to me when I found out that Mozilla had beaten Microsoft to top spot.

According to web analytics firm statcounter March saw a change at the top of the European browser market for the first time in years. Mozilla’s Firefox 3 took the title from Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7. Firefox 3 took 35.05% of the European web market, followed by IE7 with 34.54%. The move into top spot can be partly explained by a small switch of users switching from IE7 to IE8, but also it can be attributed to a growing market share overall by Firefox.
In February IE7 had a global market share of 41%, followed by Firefox 3 with 24%, according to figures produced by Statcounter.
