Mozilla Firefox Catches up with Internet Explorer in Bulgaria
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.
