kroxx sent us a link to's latest browser usage share figures, which report that Mozilla has a 1.8 percent global usage share. This makes it the fourth most popular browser after Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 6, 5.5 and 5. In total, IE has a global usage share of 94.8 percent, according to the Amsterdam-based website statistics firm.

Meanwhile, Gunnar writes: ", one of Germany's major computer-related websites, reports that Gecko browsers had a share of almost 30% (29.9%) in January 2004 among their visitors. This is up 10.5% in a year (or a 50% increase)." An English translation of the Heise article is available.

The last time they released statistics (<…l/aboutus_pressbox23.html> ) they listed the manufacturers seperatly. These were their stats:

BROWSERS: Mozilla 1.6% Netscape Navigator 4 0.6%.

BROWSER MAKERS: Netscape Navigator 2.5% Mozilla 1.6%

The Mozillas match up, but the Netscapes don't, suggesting that they have recorded 1.9% Netscape 6/7 usage that is not shown. Assuming this has not changed that would make market share 3.5%, which is more like what I have read elsewhere.
