'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.

#24 This is actually encouraging

What the pool shows is that Mozilla is popular among people who cares. Some of this may eventually trickle down to "ordinary users" who take advice from the first group. Which means we should see a steady, but slow growth in the number of Mozilla users who show up in the statistics. .
