The browser wars redux: What one website’s statistics are showing

LabourStart may not be a typical website. It caters to a large international audience working in some 15 languages. Its readers are trade unionists. This may not mean much, but in December 2004 (the first half of the month), Microsoft Internet Explorer is the browser used less than 63% of the time by our readers. The Mozilla/Netscape browsers get a combined 29%. In other words, for every two users of Internet Explorer, we have one Mozilla user.
This is considerably higher than what is being reported from such US-based services as Web Side Story (around 4% market share for Mozilla).
