Interestingly, in Germany, 39% of the users are using Firefox as their browser and 24% in Australia. Open source seems to be the way to go these days.
With a new release of Firefox expected shortly, this will be a great time for Firefox to sweep up more users and gain a larger portion of the market share. All of the customization makes Firefox a top pick among those who’ve experienced it. The web browser race will be on as Microsoft is set to release a new version of Internet Explorer before years end!
Also worth mentioning, Opera is currently holding 1% of the market with its newly released version 9.0. Opera is a browser popular among “tech geeks” that is slowly gaining popularity. Just like Firefox, Opera users are certainly dedicated! Apple’s Safari ranks number three behind Internet Explorer and Firefox with almost 2% of the market.
