A part from Patrick’s blog post about Mozilla Camp Europe is about me:) Thanks Patrick for organizing the advocacy track and for being so polite and friendly.
Here is the story:
Bogo Shopov kicked us off on Saturday in fine style. To learn more about Bogo and his adventures in freedom fighting, you can read his page, Who the f**k is Bogo -few “About” pages start so promisingly. Bogo kicked us off by explaining that his mother told him not to talk to strangers, and consequently we all had to introduce ourselves. And then…a pantomime, “The non-linear behaviour of a business mind”. For about 15 minutes, Bogo silently performed his working day. I think this was to make us consider decision making cycles in businesses. But it might have just been a laugh. Mission accomplished on both counts, and a wonderful and imaginative way to kick off the track.
In terms of market share, Mozilla Firefox is a lot more popular in Bulgaria than it is globally, and appears to be catching with Internet Explorer.
This becomes clear from data about the market share of the Internet browsers in Bulgaria in September provided by the metric agencies Gemius and Nielsen, as cited by the Pari Daily.
Internet Explorer has a 52,4% market share in Bulgaria, whereas Firefox is used by 39,1%. This contrasts with the global market shares of the two most popular browsers. Globally, Internet Explorer has 65,7%, whereas Mozilla Firefox has 23,75%.
In September 2009, Firefox increased its global market share by 0,77%, whereas Internet Explorer lost 1,26%.
Another major difference between the Bulgarian market of Internet browsers is that the Norwegian browser Opera is the third most popular with a share of 4,43%, whereas Apple’s Safari is out of the top 3.
