The Web South Africans want

When Mozilla launched the latest version of Firefox towards the end of April 2014, it also went online with its “Web We Want” campaign and survey.

Anyone can access the site and participate in the poll, but those who installed Firefox 29 were guided to the page upon the launch of the new browser.

When a user lands at the site, they are presented with the question, “What kind of Web do you want?” and presented with 6 options.

One of the features of the site is that it lets you see how users answered the poll by country.

The table below summarises how South Africans answered:

Mozilla Web We Want survey
What matters to you? South Africa Median
Safeguards privacy 31.0% 28.8%
Creates opportunity 9.7% 11.1%
Is available to all 18.4% 18.5%
Promotes freedom 11.2% 13.6%
Inspires learning 15.6% 13.9%
Puts me in control 14.1% 11.2%

Mozilla also provided an overview of the technical details of the site on its blog, and the source code is available on Github for those who want to see how they did it.
