Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2: the duel of the Betas in Spain

In Spain, we make the same observations as in France: Internet Explorer 7 is more used than Firefox 2. However the breakthrough of the Beta version of Firefox is not as marked as in France.
  • Study carried out from 07/24/06 to 09/24/06
  • The whole XiTi perimeter
As in France, more web visits in Spain use Internet Explorer 7 than Firefox 2

Made available on-line earlier, IE7 has a considerable head start in terms of the web visits generated. During the week of 18 to 24 September 2006, 0.9% of visits in Spain were made using the beta version of the Internet Explorer 7 browser, compared with 0.2% using the beta version of Firefox.

The beta versions of both browsers have advanced over the last 9 weeks:
  • IE7 has seen its proportion multiplied by 1.7,
  • while the share of Firefox 2 has doubled.


The market shares of the beta versions are a little closer than the overall Internet Explorer and Firefox families' market shares, but the trend is considerably less marked than in France.

During the week of 18 to 24 September 2006, 86% of web visits using Internet Explorer or Firefox can be attributed to the market leader, compared with 82% for visits using beta versions. The differential is thus smaller than in France for the same period (80%/58%).


In terms of evolution, Spanish visits using a beta version of the Firefox 2 browser have multiplied by 2.5 in 9 weeks, against 2 for visits using IE7 beta:
