Xiti releases a studyon on the impact of Download Day and the launch of Firefox 3 in Europe:

Quoting Xiti – “Download Day” is plain to see: the average share of visits by Firefox 3 in European countries practically doubled between June 17 and 18, 2008:

* From June 9 to 17, Firefox 3’s market share is pretty stable…
* before rising from 3.6% on June 17 to 6.5% on June 18, 2008 with the launch of its official release.

Firefox 3’s share of visits then rises day by day to hit 9.3% on June 22, 2008, or almost one visit in every ten on average in Europe and a threefold rise during the week when “Download day” took place”.

They go on to show the table above with EU’s average market share hovering around 34% – which would be a 5% increase since the last Xiti report was published in April ( The numbers in this table are pretty changeable, reaching 34% 2 days before the launch of Fx 3.

Xiti should be publishing their quarterly report at the end of this month – it will be interesting to see the numbers for EU over this longer period.

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:

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!
