What an amazing 7 days its been for Firefox…
Last Friday Gandalf brought to our attention the latest Gemius browser market figures for Hungary. We were delighted to see Firefox 2 now at the top of the ‘browser version’ list – with more users than IE 6 and more than IE7. We are still fighting against a combined Microsoft market share of 60+% but our numbers still continue to grow, whilst theirs continues to shrink. We’ll keep you updated with this amazing progress.
Likewise in Poland yesterday – the very same thing happened. Gemius released their latest ‘browser version’ numbers, showed Firefox 2 pulling away here in terms of the most number of users. Similarly we are playing catch up behind IE, but in Poland the gap is much closer with IE 6 &7 totaling 56% and Firefox 2 34.7% according to Gemius.
Finally, Tristan just a few moments ago has blogged about the latest Xiti Numbers for Europe which have been released in French. I’m afraid my french is more than rusty – so I’m more than happy to cite Tristan’s amazing news that Xiti states Firefox now has on average in Europe – 29% market share. For more please read Tristan’s post here: http://standblog.org/blog/post/2008/04/25/Firefox-progress-in-Europe
When I am privy to the EN version – I’ll be pulling this apart and sharing more with you then.
But in the meantime, I think we should offer a VERY big thanks to the Hungarian and Polish teams – and for the rest of Europe – a HUGE well done to you too!
