One out of 5 belgian surfers uses Firefox

An interesting article from Zdnet.be. With a 21% market share, Belgian has an average compared to other European countries. Firefox is used most often in Slovenia with a 47,9 percentage. Read the article for more details (notice: it's in dutch).

I think this is a good evolution . It doesn't matter if Firefox or Internet Explorer is the most performant and secure browser. Diversity is just good. It not only gives us a choice, a vulnerability in one product doesn't expose us all at once. I would have liked to see a third one gaining in market share. Maybe I'm just dreaming.

Browser Statistics Month by Month

2007 IE7 IE6 IE5 Fx Moz S O
June 19.7% 37.3% 1.5% 34.0% 1.4% 1.3% 1.8%
May 19.2% 38.1% 1.5% 33.7% 1.3% 1.4% 1.7%
April 19.1% 38.4% 1.7% 32.9% 1.3% 1.5% 1.6%
March 18.0% 38.7% 2.0% 31.8% 1.3% 1.6% 1.6%
February 16.4% 39.8% 2.5% 31.2% 1.4% 1.7% 1.5%
January 13.3% 42.3% 3.0% 31.0% 1.5% 1.7% 1.5%

So Firefox is still gaining in share. I have used it since version 0.6 and I still prefer it as my main browser together with some of my favorite extensions:
Firefox 2

If you don't like firefox, try Opera or Safari. Diversity is good for our security.
