Firefox passes IE on AVC!

I’ve posted on this a couple times before.

In November of 2004, 57% of my readers used IE and 28% used Firefox.

In January of 2005, 63% of my readers used IE and 26% used Firefox.

Now, only 38% of my readers use IE and 42% used Firefox.  Firefox has passed IE as the leading browser on my blog.  I am sure IE is still safely ahead on the Internet at large, but not in my world.

Here is the chart:

The other big gainer is Safari.  It’s gone from 5% in November 2004 to 12% today.

I know that there are emerging security issues with Firefox that must please Microsoft at some level, but Firefox is a juggernaut that is really taking share from IE and that is a big deal.
