It was interesting to see a blog such as VentureBeat write about Firefox’s market share growth in Europe last Friday. (Now hovering around 30% across the EU on average). In my opinion the coverage posted by VentureBeat – whose focus is usually “…news and information about private companies and the venture capital that fuels them” is another clear signal of the attention Open Source is claiming in the world of business. Read the article and interesting VentureBeat study here:
