Nice Article from ComputerWorld Firefox dips a little in market share as Safari still gains.

But safari only has one direction to go, sorry couldn't help myself Mac ;D

The statement is flawed, safari isn't taking any share from a windows environment, it doesn't run on windows so it can take a share of windows browser environment. Sounds like talking up safari when what is happening is OS X increases its user base and not safari being the driving force in increasing OS X numbers.

"The more interesting trend is on the Safari side," said Vizzaccaro. "It looks like it's taking share away from browsers in the Windows environment."

Net Applications, which also tracks Web users' operating systems, said that the increase in Safari's share has been matched move for move by a climb in Mac OS X use

I agree, it is not taking away from the windows browser share. I do not see how Safari is gaining market share when it is still vastly inferior to Firefox
