Is Firefox 3.5 the most popular browser?

From the 'Netscape's Revenge' files:

After years of playing second fiddle to Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser, Mozilla Firefox is now on top - kinda/sorta.

According to new data from the StatCounter.com, Firefox 3.5 is now the most popular browser version in the world at 21.9 percent, surpassing IE 7 21.2 percent.

The catch (because there always is one with stats) is that on a cumulative basis - that is including all versions of IE currently in use and all Firefox versions currently in use - IE is still ahead.

Combining IE 6, 7 and 8 usage gives Microsoft a great than 50 percent share while Firefox holds just over 30 percent.
