mozilla rising

I was looking at the stats for this month for the site today and I noticed the following use percentages:

  • MS Internet Explorer (All Versions) 37.7 %
  • Netscape (Versions) 31.2 %
  • Unknown 26.5 %
  • Opera 2.7 %
Now, I'm quite sure that Netscape means "Mozilla" since I use mozilla to access the site frequently and Mozilla is not even on the list. Or maybe mozilla is that pesky "Unknown"... in any case, it would seem to me that mozilla/netscape use has to be rising somewhat, since even accounting for differences in "demographics" the percentage use for IE would still be way below the +90% that is often quoted. Mozilla 6/Netscape 7 are definite improvements over the ill-fated Communicator (that actually pushed me to switch over to IE since it crashed so frequently), and I would not be surprised if it's actually beginning to show. Go mozilla!

EU vs. Microsoft

News.com: EU won't be swayed by US Decision on Microsoft. Now that the US case seems to be winding down, everything depends on Europe. However, since Microsoft is not a European company, I expect they can do little more than punish MS with fines and restrictions, neither of which is much of a problem for Microsoft.
