Good news for the fans of Firefox after long time: Firefox has become the top browser in the South American country Bolivia. Mozilla’s cross-platform, open source and free web browser has now around 34% browser market share in Bolivia. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Google’s Chrome have 32% and 30% share respectively.
According to the stats estimated by Statcounter.com, Firefox took over IE in the current month and its user base is continuously increasing. From the following graph, it is clear that Chrome is also getting popular in Bolivia:
One major reason behind this growing popularity of Firefox in Bolivia is certainly the volunteers of Mozilla Bolivia community. Mozilla has this unique advantage over all other browser vendors. In the last month, the Mozilla Bolivia community had launched a campaign on social networking sites across the country to promote the Firefox.
Of course, Firefox is losing market share in almost all the reasons worldwide, but this particular incident highlights the power of volunteers and community support.
