Market share just means percentage of users, I believe.

Wow, 25%. I never thought I'd see the day. IE still dominates, but this looks promising.

I doubt it will ever reach MUCH higher than this, unless Microsoft signs a deal and starts bundling it with Windows or something, because most of that other 75% is your average computer user, who has no idea what spyware even is.

They should totally lose IE and go FF when installing windows FF should come pre-installed and if you have a google email account Google Browser Sync.
I have all favs, cookies, pass's etc... saves and it's awesome.
