Firefox continues the rise

Posted 9 years ago by Adam Gautsch

The internets (or at least those who code for it) are a bit of a buzz at the latest browser usage numbers. Internet Explorer is at 69% and Firefox is at 21%. This is good news.

The best part for me though (and how I realized this trend without having to see the numbers) was that in general conversation more people knew what Firefox was. A couple years ago, most of the population assumed the internet was only accessed through IE and when I asked them what browser they were using I got a look of utter confusion. No more.

Happy days.

PS: Chrome has become my default browser because of its speed and fewer bugs than FF. I kinda like IE7 but not having spell check as default makes no sense.

Maybe you should consider going back to Internet Explorer because I think your spelling may have declined over the past few years.

I think it is interesting how something as simple as an automatic spell checking system can really make the big differences in personal preference for something like a web browser. It is one of the big features for which I usually choose Firefox over IE7 (though there are a number of other little things I like too). Is spell check the equivalent to language (or writing specifically) as the calculator was/is to math?

I like your the 'Internet' is 'Internet Explorer'

I still deal with too many people who associate double clicking that icon to be turning on the Internet!
