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.

I have OneStat on mycroft <> I don't see the exact logs, but mozdev folks probably have them. Right now they look like that (January 2004)

1. Mozilla 128,937 96.85%

2. Microsoft Internet Explorer 1,902 1.43%

3. Netscape Navigator 1,630 1.22%

4. Opera 240 0.18%

5. Other 215 0.16%

6. Apple 172 0.13%

7. Search engine crawlers 41 0.03%

Total 133,137 100.00%

So for personal stats, they do reach a total of 100%. Question would be what "other" is, but on my site, it doesn't make 1% as you claim. :-P Ah yes, and you don't see the breakup in versions for IE or others. For that, you would need a paying account.

I notice in their pressbox that they stop mentioning any browser as soon as it gets below the 0.5% mark. Exception here is safari, which they have been mentioning for the last 2 reports and only now it's appearing in the list with 0.48%.
