Firefox Update

Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 due imminently available now!

Firefox market share on the rise again according to OneStat. Global usage ~13% on average with rates in Western nations sometimes much higher (e.g. they have Australia listed at 24% and Germany at 39%!). This agrees qualitatively with the Xiti Monitor data from last month (though trying to find precise consensus is like trying to nail down jello ;).

Update: WebSideStory has some new numbers out, which agree qualitatively with the numbers I previously mentioned (though again, there is no exact consensus :).

Here’s something interesting as per the OneStat US data:

For every 5 people using IE there is one person using Firefox

For every 5 people using Firefox there is one person using Safari

For every 4 people using Safari there is one person using Opera

For every 4 people using Opera there is one person using Netscape

For every 2 people using Netscape there is one person using some other browser

alternately…

99.9% of people in the US use one of the top five browsers (IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera or Netscape)

95.6% of people use one of the top two browsers (IE or Firefox)

79.8% of people use IE
