Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla Firefox has achieved a market share of over 20 percent in Europe, according to the latest figures released by French Web metrics firm XiTi. XiTi, which based its figures on a sample of 32.5 million Web site visits that took place on Sunday 8 January, said that Finland has the highest proportion of Firefox users, followed by Slovenia and Germany. It found that the open source browser is used by 38, 36 and 30 percent of users in these countries respectively.

But XiTi's figures should probably be taken with a pinch of salt, as Firefox usage tends to be highest over the weekend, according to Tristan Nitot, the president of Mozilla Europe.

If you want more reliable data, track trends over a longer period and increase the sample size to include a broader range of websites. Otherwise, there's just no way to verify the results. In my opinion, FireFox has no greater than 10% market share anywhere. But that's just my opinion.
