FireFox on the march – 29%! : Browser Statistics from the AMIS Technology Weblog


Our weblog started last July. Since then we had over 250000 hits from over 45000 different IP-addresses. Last night, I sat down to do a comparison between the various browsers used to access our Technology Weblog. And I also looked at the trends since July. It is interesting to see how the balance is shifting.

Last week, 29% of the visits to our Weblog were made from FireFox, with Internet Explorer down to 54%. In July we had 88% Internet Explorer visits.

These graphics were produced from the MySQL database that contains all Weblog Statistics using JSPs with JSTL, XML, XSLT and SVG. A live report can be seen at Browser Pie Shop.

  1. Hi,

    Currently (20 March 2005) Firefox is used by about 23 % of my visitors. The people who visit my web site are very technically orientated. You are free to check my web site statistics.
    I am glad to see that FF has such a strong presence on some sites. I am interested to know the global market share of FF. I heard that IE has 90% globally (which is huge). Where is a link that proves it ?

    We just had a discussion here on the rise of FireBird. According to one of my colleagues, FireBird is now on 10% for normal ( 🙂 ) sites.

  3. 42% from mozilla based browsers against 54% from IE is really good news! Of course due to the nature of this blog the readers will be more or less tech-savvy and might not be good representations of the average internetuser, but maybe the time for webdesigners to adhere to W3C standards has finally come!
