Moments after sending the delicious cake to Microsoft’s IE team, Harvey Anderson, the Vice President of Business Affairs at Mozilla, has published a blog post, which investigated the consequences of the browser ballot glitch.
According to Harvey, Firefox downloads saw a decrease of 63% to as low as 20,000 per day and increased by 150% to 50,000 per day after the fix was issued.
In addition to that, he claims that Mozilla lost 6-9 million Firefox downloads during the 15 month period.
Speaking of the market share, ComputerWorld says that, “from March 2011 until June 2012, Firefox lost 7.5 percentage points of share in Europe”, “an average monthly decline of nearly half a point. In the 16 months prior, Firefox lost just 2.3 percentage points, an average of 0.14 point.”
EU is yet to fine Microsoft.
