A round of applause for Drupal, please. Drupal is now powering more than one million websites worldwide, reinforcing its ranking as one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) on the planet.
According to BuiltWith Research, Drupal powers more than 12 percent of the world’s top 100,000 websites as measured by traffic. That's still far behind Wordpress, which runs more than 43 percent of those top 100,000 sites. But it's still a significant feat, according to Holly Ross, executive director of the Drupal Association, the nonprofit organization that supports the Drupal open source project.
Ross is clearly enamored with Drupal. "Every day, we hear stories from all over the world about how Drupal is changing individual lives for the better," she effused in a statement.
