Since Jason Kottke posted his stats and linked to an old stats post I had made I thought now would be another good time to update the scorecard here. It looks like Firefox usage on this site is growing quite rapidly of late. Here are the stats to date:

Browser Session % % Change
Firefox 45.08% up 6.68%
Internet Explorer 27.90% down 0.94%
Mozilla 17.98% down 2.19%
Opera 4.07% down 1.83%
Safari 3.01% down 1.24%
Netscape 1.31% down 0.47%
Konqueror 0.59% up 0.03%
Camino 0.05% down 0.06%

As always, it is important to note that this is a developer site, not a consumer site so the stats do not reflect mainstream web usage. Also, be sure to check out my previous stat reports if you like: December 16th, 2004, November 14th, 2004, and October 25th, 2004.

Apparently Firefox is increasing strength at the expense of other minority browsers - not IE.. I wonder if that's an allround tendency?

Firefox has certainly gained much more ground on my website at the expense of IE. The stats for my site are around: Firefox: 69% IE: 16% Other: 15% But that's hardly suprising given that my site degrades rather significantly in IE.

Here are some statistics from a mainstream site, for what they're worth.

Hi, The statistics on my web site have closely followed the statistics from Currently (June 2, 2005) FF has around 25 % of the browser market share. Please keep in mind that my site is for software developers. Regards, Razvan
