Browser Market Share, September 2006

Below is the % browser share, based on traffic to my two highest trafficked sites in September 2006:

  • IE:¬ 69.7%
  • Firefox:¬ 26.5%
  • Opera:¬ 2.0%
  • Safari:¬ 0.7%
  • Mozilla:¬ 0.6%
  • Netscape: 0.3%
  • Konqueror: 0.1%

As this is the first time I am doing this type of study, there is no historical data to look at the trends.¬ It does appear that IE is losing share, while Firefox is gaining share.¬ This increase in popularity¬ is probably why Mozilla-type browsers had more bugs than IE during the first half of 2006.
