nginx market share growing faster than any other web server

According to the latest netcraft web survey nginx market share is growing faster than that of any other web server, even though it is still small relative to Apache or Microsoft IIS. In December 2010 nginx share grew by 0.88% to 7.5% – which can also be expressed as a 13.3% increase.

Apache 59.13%
Microsoft 21.00%
nginx 7.50%
Google 5.53%
lighttpd 0.68%

I did not take much notice of nginx until hearing Ryan Dahl evangelise it at Cloudstock, a Dreamforce event, last month. Now I plan to install it at itwriting.com when I find the time.
