It’s surprising how the simplest things can sometimes be the most revealing…
We’ve previously talked quite a bit about the international landscape that describes Firefox adoption and usage. See here and here, along with this old post from Schrep. Today, Jane asked me a relatively simple question related to Firefox usage in Europe. Within a minute, I found the answer to her question creating the pie chart below. In the past, I’ve generally focused on usage patterns by country, but I found this simple view of the data much more eye opening than previous analyses.
What is most surprising?
We previously highlighted the interactive Treemap below showcasing internet population and penetration by both region and country. Asia appears to represent about 40% of the global internet population, but it isn’t as nearly well represented in the Firefox chart above (12%). Clearly, there’s much more work for us to do here in the future (a good thing!).
