leave a comment »

For the first time ever, the Firefox browser accounted for 20 percent of browser usage over a sustained period. The browser topped the one-fifth mark for two weeks in October.

Firefox’s usage share, according to NetApplications, was 17.76% in April 2008. Usage dropped slightly between August (19.73%) and September (19.46%) before surging up last month. The September defections mainly moved to IE, which jumped to 71.52% of browser usage before settling down to 71.27 in October. Safari was down .08% to 6.57% of the market, and Opera ticked up .06% to .75% of Web users. Chrome, for which statistics were first recorded in September, started with .78% and in October edged down to .74%.

More statistics may be viewed on the NetApplications site.
