FF More Popular Than IE7 – Woo Hoo!

Dec - 21 - 2009

This news from Download Squad makes me very happy :)

We’ve all been watching the browser share trends for quite some time now, wondering when the day would come that an alternative finally shoved Internet Explorer off its perch.

It’s finally happened – at least when we’re talking about the most popular single version of a browser. You can see it all in the bar graph above: Firefox 3.5 has dethroned Internet Explorer 7.

Yes, we can all see the other two lengthy bars below IE7. Add them up, and it still means Internet Explorer (6,7, and 8 combined) is more popular overall. Still, for anything to overtake IE anywhere is pretty dang impressive.

We’ve still got 10 days left in 2009 to see where things wind up, but there’s no denying that this has been a good year for Mozilla.
