Firefox 4 Eclipses Internet Explorer 9, StatCounter Reports

Firefox 4, which was launched on 22nd March, has already taken 1.95% of the worldwide Internet browser market according to StatCounter. Firefox 4 scored higher globally than Microsoft’s new Internet Explorer 9 which was launched more than a week ago.

“When all versions of each browser are taken into account, IE still leads the global market with 45% followed by Firefox with 30% and Chrome with 17%. In the US, IE (all versions combined) leads the market with 48% followed by Firefox on 26% and Chrome on 14%.”

On a monthly basis, StatCounter figures show a steady decline in the IE global market share from 55% in February last year to 45% this year. In the same time frame Google’s Chrome has risen steadily from 7% worldwide to 17%.

“Firefox 4 has really hit the ground running and has eclipsed the launch of IE 9,” commented Aodhan Cullen, CEO, StatCounter. “Although IE 9 has undoubtedly been hampered by its lack of compatibility with Windows XP.” By yesterday IE 9 had taken just 0.87% of the worldwide market.

StatCounter recently reported that Firefox overtook Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) to become the number one browser in Europe for the first time in December 2010.
