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 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.
