The Mozilla Metrics blog announced the publishing of the foundation's first ever quarterly analyst report on browser share and other internet insights.  The report says that Firefox currently has a global market share of nearly 30% and in Europe, that share is nearly 40%.  Some more interesting stats are included in the report - one source even tracks numbers for Antarctica (Antarctica, why ???) and nearly 80% of the continent's users (probably penguins) prefer Firefox over other browsers (I hear penguins prefer Linux as well).  Mozilla says we can expect similar reports every quarter moving forward.
