Firefox crosses 20% Browser Market Share

Market Share points that Firefox usage share increased significantly with three major reasons – U.S. election, Thanksgiving holiday and extra weekend days. Around November 4, Firefox usage increased significantly and remained steady until the Thanksgiving holiday. Then November had 10 weekend days and it contributed towards extra usage of Firefox.

Now, Firefox is in the second position in the global browser market share chart. Microsoft Internet Explorer tops the charts with nearly 70% market share and the third position is occupied by Safari with more than 7% market share. Google’s Chrome broswer is in the fourth position with nearly 1% share. So, which one is your favorite browser?

    Too bad IE just doesn’t go away and vanish into the ether…I’m tired of having to rework CSS just for IE failure to comply to standards…

    Go FireFox!

    Firefox deserves its ranking! It is far better than IE ever thot to be and certainly is getting more users each and every day. Congrats Firefox!

    What? I thought that Firefox passed the 50% long ago. I guess plenty of non-geek types are still using IE.

    I love my Firefox but I’m starting to like Google Chrome more and more.
