Firefox beats Internet Explorer

Whilst browsing through the data collected for this blog by Google Analytics in December, I noticed that for the first month ever (well, since February when I started hosting the blog myself) that Firefox has been used by more visitors than Internet Explorer:

Firefox beats IE

Only by a small margin, but interesting nonetheless. With Firefox 3 in beta and the next version of IE a good way off, it will be intriguing to see if this trend continues in 2008. Admittedly this is a small blog and therefore a small sample size. The nature of the visitors here is probably slightly more inclined towards using Firefox (or Safari or others) than IE anyway.

Update: Actually, with the inclusion of December 31st, IE snuck back into the lead by 3 visits.
