'PC-Welt' Poll Finds Large Usage Share for Mozilla-Based Browsers

Wednesday December 18th, 2002

The German magazine PC-Welt recently polled its readers to find out the most popular browser. The results are interesting: 33.7% of respondents use a Mozilla-based browser, with half of those choosing Mozilla itself (17.4%) and the rest going with Netscape 6.x (1.8%), Netscape 7.x (9.6%) or Phoenix (4.9%). This shows a large increase in the use of Mozilla-based browsers since the results of a similar poll were published last year. Internet Explorer is still the most popular browser overall with a 41.1% vote share.

Though the PC-Welt article is in German, a rough English translation is available courtesy of Google. Thanks to Hanno Boeck for the news.

<…er/data/anw-18.12.02-000/> stats from showing a climb from just under 9% in March to just over 19% in December for gecko based browsers. That's more than a doubling of gecko hits at a very popular German tech site in less than 1 year. It also shows Opera + Netscape (gecko and 4.x I guess) taking share from MicroSoft in that same period.
