In November, The Register revealed that 47% of its readership chose Firefox over other browsers. El Reg seemed rather proud of this aspect of its audience, apparently we exhibit “a certain technical savvy you won’t find in the general population”. Well, quite.
But are Register readers the savviest demographic out there? Or can they be bested? Do you admininster a site with more than 47% (or can you come close)? We put together a group on SpreadFirefox where you can show off.
A few ground rules:
- Your site should have its own domain name (you own a .org, .com, .se, .cn etc).
- You should not have an official association with Mozilla (other than being an affiliate, of course!).
- You don’t break any laws or violate any rights by sharing this data.
- We do this for honour and glory, i.e. no cheating and, uh, no prizes.
- No adult content (if you aren’t sure…send it to me and I will check it out in the privacy of my own office).
Also, I have to give a special mention to Erick Leon Bolinaga, who is a student at the Universidad de las Ciencias Informaticas in Havana (UCI has around 13,000 students). He has been spreading Firefox at his university, and his blog, “Firefoxmania” gets a whopping 66.8% of Firefox traffic. Unfortunately, it is only available to members of the unversity, so The Register can breathe easy…for now.
But if you can down The Register’s score, please do visit SpreadFirefox and display your wares!
