Firefox Userbase Increases Once Again

The percentage of users browsing with the Firefox web browser has increased to 11.5%, the highest percentage that the browser has reached. Web Analysis firm One Stat produced the information taken from users of its stat service. It seems as though the percentage is even higher in America, where it reached 14.1%, while a lowly 4.1% of the British public use Firefox.

The percentage of people using Firefox has increased 3 points since April 2005, taking yet another chunk of Internet Explorers huge market share of 85.5%, but it is not only Internet Explorer that has suffered from Firefox's increased popularity. Other popular browsers such as Opera have seen their usage percentages fall, with users either going to Firefox or Internet Explorer.

One Stat reported that figures for Apple's OSX web browser Safari, had also made an increase over the past 6 months, most likely down to the rejuvenated success that the mac line has had this year.
