In the week ending Saturday July 10, 2004, for the first time, ongoing received more visits from browsers in the Mozilla family than from Internet Explorer. I’ve attached a graph.
This may have occurred a little earlier than you’d expect because of this week’s Safari spike (due to a couple of articles about Dave Hyatt’s work on that browser). But if you look at the curve, it’s a pretty safe bet that the lines would have crossed before too long.
Also, my audience is unusually geeky, unusually security-conscious, and unusually Mac-heavy.
But even allowing for all that, my bet is that the news is real. That graph? It’s what the future looks like.
