IE7 vs. Firefox browser share at (end of March 2007)

(Click to view a larger image)

Part of a continuing series -- refer to this previous post, for example -- here's the latest browser share chart on 30 March 2007.

There's something of a resurgence for Firefox (over 30 percent share for once), while IE7's growth seems to have slowed over the last month.

I'm rather surprised that Internet Explorer 6 still holds around a 40 percent share. I would have expected more users to have accepted the Windows XP automatic update path and have had their systems upgraded to IE7 by now. Any comments?

  1. Not everyone does auto-update on XP. Also, Windows 2000 and 98 still have quite a presence, and they won't auto-update to IE7. And again, I don't think IE7 even works on Mac or Linux. (But IE6 is quite usable for broken sites on Linux using Crossover Office.)
