How Many Firefox Users Install Extensions?

Recently, Mozilla has revealed some of the Firefox add-on installation statistics for curious people to check out.

According to the blog post, an incredible 85% of Firefox 4 users have add-ons installed, excluding Personas or other extensions that are bundled with other software packages aka forced installations. Mozilla has also stated that due to upgrades, the number varies but managed to stay at 85-89%.

To put it into perspective: more than 60 million Firefox users use add-ons every day with the average of 5 add-ons per web browser install.

    It’s only shame that Mozilla haven’t specified which addons they meant by “excludes popular add-ons bundled with other software that the user hasn’t actively agreed to install”. Because we all know that Mozilla like to glamorise their statistics from time to time :)

    Would be nice to see this compared to Internet Explorer.

    Firefox without add-ons is pretty lame, I’m surprised that as many as 15% have no add-ons
