Firefox v. Internet Explorer in Europe

StatCounter Global Stats reports that in December 2010, Firefox became the most popular browser in Europe, with 38.11% market share, compared to Internet Explorer’s 37.52%:

“This is the first time that IE has been dethroned from the number one spot in a major territory,” commented Aodhan Cullen, CEO, StatCounter. This appears to be happening because Google’s Chrome is stealing share from Internet Explorer while Firefox is mainly maintaining its existing share. . . .

In North America IE still retains a clear lead in the browser market with 48.92% followed by Firefox (26.7%), Chrome (12.82%) and Safari (10.16%).
Here at Orange Crate Art, Firefox leads, with 31.6% of recent visits, followed by Internet Explorer (30.6%), Safari (15.6%), and Chrome (14.6%). How do I know these things? Via my StatCounter stats.
