Mozilla's Global Usage Share Continues to Rise
Monday September 30th, 2002
According to OneStat.com, the global usage share of Mozilla 1.0 has doubled to 0.8 percent, making it the Web's seventh most popular browser. Netscape 7.0 has also seen its usage share increase, rising from 0.3 percent to 0.5 percent. However, Microsoft Internet Explorer still dominates the browser market with a total global usage share of 94.9 percent.
Thanks to Martin for the news.
sorry, folks, but it seems very likely that any supposed increase in global mozilla usage lacks any form of statistical significance, and likely falls well inside any definable margin of error.
and of course, the real-world significance is equally negligible. consider the fact that in the 2000 election, the percentage of the popular vote gained by the third-party candidates *not* including ralph nader was greater than the percentage of browser use that mozilla can proudly claim.
