Firefox in The Lead

Filed under: Cyberspace — Jan @ 17:15

Twelve months ago, Firefox was just a noselength behind Internet Explorer as the most used browser to visit Now, Firefox has a comfortable lead. For the full month of 2006, 56.8% of all page views were served to Firefox users, vs. 40.8% for Internet Explorer.

This time I also tallied the stats for the order form. I only counted POST requests, indicating actual order attempts rather than window shoppers. MSIE accounted for exactly 60.0% of the hits, while Firefox had 39.2%. In October 2005 those numbers were 67.6% and 31.3% respectively.

It’ll be interesting to see if MSIE 7 can reverse the trend by October 2007.

  1. My vote goes to Firefox V2.0. IE7 simply is not as useful as FireFox, and its interface has some, to be polite, oddities. Plus IE7 will break VB6 programs which rely on the intrinsic VB6 browser control.
    IE7 is simply not a good thing…
