Is Firefox’s position vulnerable in 2010?

For the last few years, Firefox has been the alternative browser of choice. But could it be running out of steam, wonders Simon Brew…

Firefox's honeymoon period has long since passed, though, and for many years, the browser has been standing on its own two legs. It's certainly become more bloated over the years, and it's also found itself against a much improved Internet Explorer than previously. And by the very nature of its own success, it's trodden a path that others are keen to follow.

But has it peaked? Not yet, but it's certainly having to work hard for every inch of market share it gains now. Its pace of development and quality of support works in its favour, but at the very least, Google will close the gap on it throughout 2010. Where things will stand in 2011? As Internet Explorer continues to decline, the fight could get very interesting indeed
