Netscape Communications Corp. said more than 25 million people are using its Communicator browser, giving it 67 percent of the browser market, according to statistics from some of the most-visited Web sites.

The company also said studies by Web auditing firm Media Metrix show that people use Netscape's browser longer and more often than competing browsers such as Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer.

Netscape - engaged in a war with Microsoft over dominance in the browser market - began shipping Communicator in June, but is now concentrating on selling software aimed at corporate networks and "extranets."
