Firefox now represents one-third of total traffic, Inc., a leader in web-based shopping, announced that it is now optimizing its site to better address its growing Mozilla/Firefox client base. While dealnews' site traffic doubled in the past year, its percentage of Mozilla Firefox 1.0 web browser users has increased fourfold and now represents one-third of its total traffic. Firefox, which is produced by the Mozilla Foundation, is a free web browser that has been widely praised for its stability and innovative tabbed browsing feature. John Allen, Dealnews' Director of Marketing, said, "By nature, our site tends to attract a more technically sophisticated audience. Over the past year, we have seen unprecedented acceptance of the Firefox browser among our readers. While overall our site traffic has increased 100 percent in the past 12 months, Microsoft Internet Explorer traffic has only grown 50 percent. Firefox traffic has increased 400 percent. Fully 35 percent of our traffic in May was from Firefox or a Mozilla-compatible client. We feel this is significant trend and have taken steps to ensure our site is fully optimized for use with this web browser."

"and innovative tabbed browsing feature"

Not innovated by Mozilla though, that's quite a misleading statement.

Itís a quote, so that comment is pointless; itís not as if Henrik can change it. Give a comment on the original article.

Besides, whether Mozilla has invented tabbed browsing or not, that doesnít mean itís not innovative.
