“Looking at the statistics in the data, it is really striking to see how quickly Firefox is taking hold in the marketplace,” Janco CEO, Victor Janulaitis told ClickZ. Janco reported findings from their study of Web browser market share on their IT Productivity Web site.
Microsoft’s Internet Explorer still dominates with an 83.7 percent share in April, down 1.78 percent in the three month time period. Firefox more than doubled its reach, hitting the number two spot with a 10.28 percent share of the market, up 6.05 percent from January’s measurement of 4.23 percent. Interest in browsers implementing automatic updates to get the latest browser versions and avoid attacks on browsers is speculated to be fueling the Firefox growth.
“One of the problems is that Microsoft has been asleep at the switch,” explains Janulaitis, giving a reason why there may be room for Firefox to grab a larger stake in the browser space, “they have not had advancements in their technology.”
