"These figures show similar trends to those being reported by thecounter.com, although thecounter.com puts mozilla usage at around 2.2%."
#49 in case it wasn't 100% clear...

by 'get the real deal' I am saying you as a web developer need to run browser stats on your own site before making decisions based on browser usage. And if you're trying to convince a friend or colleague to test on mozilla then you need to run the stats on their actual site for them.
don't swallow the global bullshit, the only real deal is the real stats you run on your real site (using a reliable analyser that actually understands the 'Gecko' concept).
By the way, some other notes about my site; WinIE still held 90% of share on my site, but Gecko at 6% was clearly the number 2 browser engine. (Opera is #3, 3%). Also, all non-browser results (search robots etc.) are excluded from these percentage share counts, we verified that all significant undetected strings were robots and excluded them from the count intentionally.
