Data collected shows that 50% of those tracked use Firefox, while 25% use Opera.

  • The term "criminal" here is fairly misleading. I suspect that the usage numbers of people running exploits through websites match the usage numbers of the computer literate closer than the actual market share. Comparing their use to the market share doesn't tell us very much in and of itself. Total market share covers a very broad demographic.
