According to StatMarket, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 has a 34% share of the browser market, which is the second most popular browser version behind its predecessor, Internet Explorer 5. The various versions of Netscape have fallen to under 7% from 12% before IE 6's release.

However, as has been mentioned before, both here on evolt.org and elsewhere, if AOL, which owns Netscape, switches its userbase from using Internet Explorer as its built-in browser to Netscape 6, there could be a sudden, serious increase in the usage of Netscape 6. Subscribers to AOL make up almost 15% of internet users, according to StatMarket.
