It's About Time!

Sitemeter informs me that less than half of all visits to this blog are made by people using Internet Explorer.  Recent news articles indicate that, across the Internet, Firefox still accounts for only 8 to 10% of browser share.  It is 15% in France, almost 25% in Germany, and over 30% in Finland.  

Other usage statistics indicate that there are a lot of users running Windows 2000.  Probably most of them are browsing from work, and their companies have installed Explorer.

Why such high Firefox penetration into the Blogosphere?  Because we're smart, that's why.  I used to use Netscape almost exclusively. Now there are so many useful extensions available for Firefox, though, it supplants Netscape in terms of usability.
