Firefox market share in Europe

XitiMonitor.com has recently published an English version of their latest browser market share study, which credits Firefox with 28% of the European market

One must try to see further than just the average number of 28%. While being quite high (certainly higher than what I hoped back when Firefox 1.0 was launched 3 years ago!), it hides the complexity of Europe, which gives very different numbers from The Netherlands (14.7%) to Finland (45.4%). Rupert Goodwins, over at his ZDNet.uk blog, writes Europe: endless speculation about Firefox . I am myself speculating quite a bit on this (after all, I want Firefox and Thunderbird to succeed in all countries in Europe), and I have a few thoughts, as I spend quite a bit of my time traveling from country to country, visiting communities working on Firefox in Europe. In the future, I hope to be able to document how Mozilla-related local communities work, so that other people interested in this can think about all the reasons for this diversity. Stay tuned!

Anyway, the Xiti report has generated quite a bit of press coverage! See below:
