'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.

MSIE displays every page out there, is the fastest in starting and and uses much less RAM than Mozilla - because of that it's still used by so many people. Nobody out there is interested, why it's faster, it IS just faster. Nobody is interested, why it displays every HTML rubbish, it does DOES it. The missing key features are roaming, possibility to run on a Pentium1 with 32MB RAM and the possibility to get into online-banking on not only 1 or 2 banks.
