Research just released by US-based Janco Associates shows that Firefox is continuing to take browser market share away from Microsoft and now has almost 20% of the market. Janco has claimed in the past (in an interview with yours truly) that figure represents a global market share but other research houses, on other continents see it differently.

Indeed, a year ago the European research house, Xiti Monitor, measured Firefox use at 25% across Europe – some territories exceeded 40%. Unfortunately, there isn’t definitive local research on the subject but reports from blogger friends who track these things seem to indicate that SA is closer to Europe than the US. Hallelujah.
