I have a nedstat counter on my own sites. For my weblog it indicates 14.7% marketshare for mozilla based browsers. This can be explained from the fact that my site is likely to attract the geeky kind of visitor due to my own background.

It would be nice to know what the figures are for categories of sites rather than just all websites all over the planet. I suspect that armed with this knowledge, many e-commerce sites, for instance, would be more eager to support Mozilla since the kind of people running Mozilla are early adopters and as such relatively active on the web. Just like only a few % of kazaa users contribute content, I suspect that only a relatively small group of active web users is driving ecommerce sales.
