Canada is leading the way in Firefox internet usage, with 16% of internet users using the popular open source programme. The figures, provided by OneStat show the gradual market increase that Firefox is gaining, with IE accounting for 77.41% in Canada.

While usage of Firefox is not as widely used as it is in Canada and the US, its share is continuing to grow, while IE usage falls slowly.
