Canada #1 in Firefox usage in the world?

Some articles appeared in my usual search today, telling that Canada leads the world in Firefox usage. “It is interesting to see that global usage share of Mozilla is higher in the USA and Canada as in other countries in the world and that the global usage share of Apple’s Safari is still growing” said Niels Brinkman, co-founder of

The numbers for the world, USA and Canada are shown:
World: 11.79%, USA: 12.91%, Canada: 16.00%

Other browsers are shown too, but in this case, it’s the Firefox numbers that are interesting, because I can’t quite see that those numbers justify the claim that Canada is #1 in Firefox usage…

Back in April, which is not too long ago, there were some other numbers that were making headlines. Here we see that there are countries where Firefox usage is way over the 16% Canada’s now sporting. Up to 35.77% in Slovenia, and 19.4% for Europe in total.

So, unless something dramatic has happened in countries over the world, the Firefox usage in Canada is higher than USA and world in total, but not higher in Canada than in any other country in the world. That’s the bad news. The good news is that Firefox usage is even higher than Canadas 16% in several countries. 😉

I have too many interests for my own good, in that I don't manage to make time for them all. A bit artistic, which can be seen to a degree.
