Firefox usage in Europe now 28.8 percent

Posted on Saturday, May 03 2008 @ 20:20:18 CEST by

Web metrics company Xiti claims Firefox had a marketshare of 28.8 percent in Europe last month, that's 0.4% more than the month before and 4.5% more than a year ago. Finland, Poland and Slovenia are the biggest Firefox users, in these countries Firefox's marketshare is 45.9%, 44% and 43.7%, respectively.

Internet Explorer is still the king with a marketshare of 65 percent and the rest of the market is split between small players like Opera (3.3%), Safari (2.3%), Netscape (0.5%) and others.

Another interesting thing the report unveils is that Firefox usage is much higher in the weekends, during the week it's 28.3% but during the weekend it jumps to 30.1%. This indicates that a lot of people use Firefox at home but are somewhat forced to use Internet Explorer at work.

Firefox usage is the highest in Oceania and Europe and trails behind a bit in Asia and Africa. Usage of Firefox increased in almost every continent in March, only in North America it dropped a little bit from 21.9% to 21.7%

Firefox usage per continent:
  • Oceania: 31.2%
  • Europe: 28.8%
  • North America: 21.7%
  • South America: 21.3%
  • Africa: 17.9%
  • Asia: 17.2%
