According to Web metrics company Net Applications the Firefox browser lost market share last month, while Apple's Safari continued to gain ground - a sure indicator of growing Mac sales.

Firefox's dip was the first since May 2006.

Safari boosted its share to 4.7% in January from 4.2% in December. This time last year, Safari held 3.1% of the browser market.

Funny that - I just changed from Safari to Firefox...

Any readers actually changed back to Safari?
