OneStat.com ( http://www.onestat.com ) today reported that Mozilla’s browsers have a total global usage share of 11.51 percent. The total usage share of Mozilla increased 2.82 percent since April 2005. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer still dominates the global browser market with a global usage share of 85.45 percent which is 1.18 percent less as at the end of April.
“The global usage share of Mozilla’s browsers is still growing and it seems that Netscape users and some Internet Explorer users are switching to the Firefox version. It also looks like that browser users of Internet Explorer for Apple’s Mac are switching to Safari because the global usage share is still growing. It is also interesting to see that Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has less global usage share in the USA as in the UK. Mozilla’s browsers are more popular in USA and Canada as in the UK” said Niels Brinkman, co-founder of OneStat.com, in a statement.
