It looks like everybody is talking about Firefox. It's not just WIRED that declared Firefox "hot", or Charles Cooper, Executive Editor, CNET News.com, who dumped IE for Firefox. It's the whole Internet community that seems to love it!
I did a little research and here are the numbers to prove it:
- spreadfirefox.com reports a 3,000,000 downloads in the period 14/9 - 2/10! [graph]
- w3schools.com reports a steady growth in Mozilla-based browsers that visit their site. It is interesting to note that Mozilla has doubled it's usage (8,2% to 16,9% in the period Jan 2004 - Sep 2004)! [graph]
- my g-metrics.com reports an exponential growth in the number of pages reported by google for "firefox".
(I guess Intelliseek's Blogpulse Trends would show the same thing, but the site was not working at the time I wrote this...)
Does anyone else have access to similar stats?
