Mozilla's Global Usage Share Now at 1.1 Percent

Tyrannosaurus Moz writes: "According to, Mozilla has achieved 1.1% usage, up 0.3% from 0.8% in September. If you count Netscape 7 as Mozilla (it is) then Mozilla-based browsers now control about 1.7% of the Web browser market." Internet Explorer is still the number one browser with a 95% usage share but Mozilla has now overtaken Opera as the third most popular browser, behind Netscape (all versions) with 3%.

How can Netscape be at 3.0% if Netscape 4.x is at 1.1%? Since Netscape 3.x is completely marginal and Mozilla 1 is listed separately, it means that Netscape's Mozilla based browsers + Mozilla must be at least 1.1 + 1.9%. Right? Or did I misread the stats or something?

In any case, it seems pretty clear that Mozilla is totally treated like an end user product by the general public. So Mozilla's denial about how UI quality etc. doesn't matter seems pretty sad in light of that...
