Firefox vs. IE

70

I thought this was interesting. I haven’t seen any stats on how well firefox is doing recently until I looked at the browser stats for http://www.writingup.com.

Writingup is a fairly normal website. It’s not technical, so I don’t think it would have a heavy slant either way. I know there are people using dial up on the site.

So, here’s the graph of browser stats:

browser stats from writingup

This will explain it a little better:

Num. Perc. Browser Name Version
3540 69.41% MSIE 6.0
710 13.92% Firefox 1.5
297 5.82% Safari 1.2
266 5.22% Firefox 1.0.7
146 2.86% Firefox 1.0.4
47 0.92% Mozilla 5.0
26 0.51% Firefox 1.0
18 0.35% Firefox 1.0.6
11 0.22% Netscape 7.2
7 0.14% Firefox 1.0.1
7 0.14% Firefox 1.0.3
6 0.12% Netscape 8.0.4
4 0.08% Mozilla 4.0
3 0.06% Opera 8.51
2 0.04% MSIE 5.0
1 0.02% MSIE 5.5
1 0.02% Firefox 1.0.5
1 0.02% MSIE 5.23
1 0.02% Opera 9.0
1 0.02% MSIE 5.01
1 0.02% MSIE 7.0
1 0.02% Firefox 1.4.1
1 0.02% Netscape 7.1
1 0.02% Netscape 7.02
1 0.02% Firefox 1.0.2

This is the log of the last 5100 hits on the site. If my numbers are correct, between firefox and mozilla (different versions of both browsers), it looks like they have about a 24.5% share of the browser market. (Firefox is built on the mozilla engine…they’re practically the same thing).

That’s HUGE!

Up from like 3% just 2 years ago.

Combine that with the fact that my 19 year old sister, a college freshman at Va. Tech who’s not the most computer savvy person (she’s certainly no dummy either), recently installed Ubuntu Linux on her desktop because she was tired of windows, and it looks like microsoft is really hurting.

Seeing that I’ve run linux on my desktop now for about 3 years, I’m very much a fan of the changes that are going on. Yes, linux still has a ways to go before most users can enjoy it, the learning curve is still pretty high, but at least the trends are going in the right direction.
