Opera and Mozilla seeing strong growth thanks to browser ballot screen

Posted on Monday, March 22 2010 @ 20:50:31 CET by

Reuters reports Internet Explorer lost some marketshare in Europe since the rollout of the browser ballot screen. Browser makers Opera and Mozilla claim the ballot screen significantly boosted their growth, and web stats from Statcounter confirm IE lost about 2.5 percent marketshare in France, 1 percent in Britain and 1.3 percent in Italy.
According to web statistics firm Statcounter, Internet Explorer's share of all Web surfing has in March dropped in France by 2.5 percentage points from February, in Britain by 1 percentage point and in Italy by 1.3 points.

Norway's Opera Software, the fourth largest browser firm, has seen downloads more than double in Europe from normal levels due to the choice screen, with downloads in Italy, Spain and Poland more than tripling.

Also No 2 browser firm, Mozilla, says it has seen strong growth. "We have seen significant growth in the number of new Firefox users as a result of the Ballot Choice screen. We expect these numbers to increase as the Ballot Choice screen fully rolls out across all countries," said a spokeswoman for Mozilla.
