Firefox Beats MSIE in Close Race Among New HostNine Customers

Last month was HostNine’s best month ever (!!!), so first and foremost, we’d like to thank each of you for your support. Have we told you lately that we really, truly appreciate your business?

While going through our signup stats, we noticed that 48% of the folks who joined us in March did so using a Firefox browser, versus 45% Internet Explorer. (The remaining 7% were split between Mozilla, Safari, Opera, Camino and Netscape.)

By the way, 77% of the Firefox contingent have upgraded to Firefox 2, while only 46% of MSIE users are on MSIE7. If you’re using an older browser version, you might want to consider downloading Firefox 2 here, or IE7 here.

In terms of operating systems, Windows XP was the clear winner (83%), followed by Vista (5%) and MacOS (4%). The remaining 8% were split between Linux, Windows 2003, Windows 2000 and Windows Me.

Why did we look up this information? Because the more we know about the tools you’re using, the better position we’ll be in to help troubleshoot any problems you might be having.

Speaking of which, are we doing a good job? If you’ve been happy with our service, it’d make our day if you could leave a comment or post a testimonial. If there’s something you’re not so pleased with, we’d love to hear that too, so we can make it right. Thanks!!
