25% of Blog Readers are FireFox Users

With the recent news that FireFox has reached a 16% share in the browser market. Blog Flux, a blog services site, has published the data that has been gathered by their MapStats program. WIth over 20 million unique visitors tracked every month, 25% of these people are using FireFox. The really interesting thing is that all the visitors being tracked are purely blog readers.

The first statistic that I wanted to take a gander at would be browser usage. For October 2005 FireFox had a 25% usage, as did it for June 2006. While it did ebb a bit (dropping as low as 23%), it seems to be relatively stable. Interesting is that IE6 seems to have lost 2%, Safari is stable at 4%, and that IE5 and Opera have been replaced as fringe browsers by IE7. NOTE: the browser #s are for each version. Opera 6, 7, 8, 9 are all tabulated separately, and thus why it does not appear on the list.

Search engine wise it seems like Google dominates by a mile. While in October AOL generated at least 1% of search engine traffic, last month it could not even muster that much. As AOL is powered by Google results, and Google’s share (of 83%) remained stable, AOL’s ability to generate traffic has definitely gone down. While MSN is stuck at 2%, Yahoo did gain a percentage point (at AOL’s expense).

Google also apparently dominated, which was to be expected.
