Firefox Adoption Stalled?

Businessweek has an article on the future of Firefox. After growing to over 10% of the browser market, Firefox's growth has stalled. With IE 7.0 coming out with features that mimic the ones in Firefox, some like Seth Godin, author of Small Is the New Big, say
Mozilla needs to incorporate tools like tagging or building tools like a link to eBay's Skype calling service that will help keep friends connected.
One interesting fact that I didn't know about:
[Mozilla] supports operations through advertising revenue generated by the Google (GOOG) search tool in the browser.
Still, if you're reading about this on Internet Explorer, consider test-driving Firefox. It has a lot of handy extensions that include ad-blocking and other safe-surfing features.
