OneStat.com Reports Mozilla Usage Share at 1.8%, Heise.de Notes Sharp Increase in Gecko Visitors
Tuesday January 20th, 2004
kroxx sent us a link to OneStat.com'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: "Heise.de, 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 <http://mycroft.mozdev.org/> 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%.
