Internet & Networking And so Firefox continues its march into Europe. It is no secret that alternative browsers are much more popular in Europe than they are in North America, and recent statistics by StatCounter confirm that Firefox 3.0 has actually surpassed Internet Explorer 7, making it the most popular browser in Europe.

The same page tells me that Firefox currently holds 100% of the market in Antarctica:

Moreover, those guys claim Opera holds 44% of the market in Ukraine:

which I find utterly ridiculous.

LOL....This is what a marketer would call "unrepresentative". When you don't have enough people, figures aren't reliable.

Because there's obviously something wrong with the stats. How many people were counted in Ukraine? 1? 2? Probably no more than that to have such results.
