Browser battles–Firefox vs. Netscape

I’ve been holding off writing about Firefox until I can do a more through job using all the new features–but Mozilla’s Rafael Ebron posted a comment on a previous post that’s worth highlighting here.
Rafael says:
“The second largest browser in terms of marketshare is Mozilla Firefox. Netscape 7.2 had short of 4MM downloads in a little less than 2 months. Firefox, with the preview release, is short of 5MM downloads in less than 1 month.
Either Nielsen/Netratings isn’t breaking out Mozilla Firefox in their number or their data is slightly inaccurate.
We’ve been asking around and checking top site logs and Mozilla/Mozilla Firefox is clearly in second place even higher than IE 5.5. (IE 6.0 is the majority browser.) ”
Anyone else tracking this?
