Tuesday January 20th, 2004

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.

It would be interesting to see Mozilla usage by region (e.g. Europe, North America, Asisa,...) . I have noticed that major German sites often report a relatively high Mozilla usage. Heise at 30% is a good example. Even better (since it's completey non-techie) is Spiegel, Germany's major news site, which reports a Mozilla share of somehwere around 20-25%.
