Germany's 'Der Spiegel' Magazine Records Increase in Use of Mozilla and Netscape

Sunday August 24th, 2003

According to Germany's Der Spiegel magazine, Mozilla's usage share may be rising (rough English translation courtesy of AltaVista's Babel Fish). In an article about the latest set of Internet Explorer security flaws, the German newsweekly reports that out of 125 million accesses to their website, 15.1% came from users of Mozilla and Netscape, a notable increase since the releases of Mozilla 1.4 and Netscape 7.1. Meanwhile, Internet Explorer usage appears to have declined, with the browser from Redmond now accounting for 83.8% of page requests. Thanks to albano, Julian and Carl Watling for the news.

IE usage for me for the current month has been at around 96%. It typically hovers in the 96-98% range, so this is in the normal range for me. OTOH, it's on the low end of the range, so it could be the sign of a downward trend, but I'll need at least another few weeks of data to see if that's the case.
