Stanford Senior Project

Schrep recently wrote an excellent post providing an introduction to the extent of Firefox usage worldwide. In his analysis, he shows that 71% of Firefox users are located outside the United States! Moreover, this percentage is growing by day.

In an effort to provide the best possible support to Firefox users around the globe and to understand both various success stories and pain points of Firefox usage, we’ve engaged with a group of students at Stanford University to help us analyze the data outlined by Schrep. For example, if we find out that a significant percentage of Fx users in China are using the en-US version (and has this trend been increasing or decreasing over time?), Mozilla China will be better enabled to provide support to these users.

We look forward to sharing some findings in a few weeks.
