Are there any studies out there that say what percentage of Internet users
use which browser? I'm trying to make a point that Firefox is probably used
more now than Netscape, both browsers second to Internet Explorer, but I
want the statement to actually be valid.

So, if you have links or knowledge of any major browser studies please pass
them on.

Thanks,
Shareta

Browser Watch seems to be defunct. This is as good as I can find:

http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

Using these stats (which they admit are skewed), Firefox has nearly
10x the usage of Mozilla and Netscape combined. Still only 1/3 of IE,
however.

Yes, w3schools' stats are skewed because their population is comprised
mostly of the HTML and CCC geeks.
There is this, multisource ((i.e. multi-skewed):

and this, "the counter":
