Firefox finally beat Internet Explorer 6

Posted on Wednesday, November 04 2009 @ 19:08:42 CET by

ARS Technica analyzed Net Application's browser usage data for October 2009 and discovered that Firefox has finally beaten the ancient IE6. The over eight years old browser is still used by 23.30 percent of Internet users, while Firefox now stands at 24.07 percent.
Between October and September, Internet Explorer dropped a significant 1.07 percentage points (from 65.71 percent to 64.64 percent) and Firefox moved up a sizeable 0.32 percentage points (from 23.75 percent to 24.07 percent). Safari increased 0.18 percentage points (from 4.24 percent to 4.42 percent) while Chrome once again moved further away from Opera: it gained a worthy 0.41 percentage points (from 3.17 percent to 3.58 percent). Opera slid 0.02 percentage points (from 2.19 percent to 2.17 percent). Although IE's decline seems to be unceasing, the real shame is that the old versions have more share than the newer ones (we can only hope that as Windows 7 gains popularity, this trend will reverse). Still, given that IE6 had 23.30 percent of the market in October, this means that Firefox has now surpassed it:
