    There are many metrics around and the worldwide view in the NetApplications one (the one you link to) is not too dissimilar to the worldwide graph provided by StatCounter. The interesting part is that Firefox use in Europe is so different to the global picture.

    Yes, I am aware of that. SA, too has such a vastly different browser demographic in comparison to the global trend. The sites we host* have an IE6 range: 30%-48% (ave: 44%) while Firefox is a mere 7%-12% the rest going to IE7. (* We host over 100 sites, most of those being for JSE listed companies, so this reflects an almost purely corporate usage.)
