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.

You can't have 44% with 1 or 2 people counted, you can only have 0%, 50% or 100%.
I don't find that ridiculous at all, I find it quite possible. It's not because in your country everybody talk english that it is not possible that there are only 1 or 2% in Ukraine who do. What is so ridiculous?
Look at that:

Google trends says the same thing as the article.
I believe it to be very close to the truth.

While Opera may be slightly overrepresented in this survey, it seems very clear that they do have a very strong market share in Russia and the Ukraine.

Look at these:

Maybe Opera simply has very good Russian and Ukrainian language versions?
