Firefox 4 downloads continue to outpace IE9 downloads, despite the fact that Microsoft has started pushing the new browser via Windows Update.

Mozilla's community coordinator for Firefox Asa Dotzler posts up some information on his personal blog.

Date comes via web metrics firm StatCounter.

Dotzler offers up some fighting words when it comes to the future that IE is facing:

"IE 9 will never catch up to Firefox ... So today, and for the foreseeable future, Microsoft will be number three in terms of usage among the modern browsers."

One reason for this is clear - while IE9 only runs on Windows Vista and 7, Firefox runs on Windows XP, Vista and 7, along with Mac OS and Linux.

Still, this is an amazing achievement for Mozilla.
