Google Zeitgeist Browser Stats Now Recognise 'Netscape 5.x'

Targeted at members of the press and the curious, Google Zeitgeist offers regular statistics on the trends, patterns and surprises found by analysing Google search data. Following on from a discussion in our forums, MozillaZine reader jgraham has been in touch with Google, who say that 'Netscape 5.x' represents "all versions of Netscape 5.0 and newer and anything that uses Gecko."

Update! Zak adds: "'s latest stats (released at beginning of Feb) show that for the first time, Mozilla has a higher share than NS4 (compare with the previous month's stats)."

nice, if there are only 2 candidates left, its not that difficult to be second. The ONLY positive point is, that the oldtimers are more of less gone - at least there.

The dissission users make, is still "MSIE 5.x or MSIE 6.0?", Gecko is far far far away from being visible. A positive message would be "Gecko has left one of the current MSIE versions behind" or "Gecko has 20%".
