It was interesting to see a blog such as VentureBeat write about Firefox’s market share growth in Europe last Friday. (Now hovering around 30% across the EU on average). In my opinion the coverage posted by VentureBeat – whose focus is usually “…news and information about private companies and the venture capital that fuels them” is another clear signal of the attention Open Source is claiming in the world of business. Read the article and interesting VentureBeat study here:

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!
