This is not a technical question but a question that i have myself. We updated to magento2 some months ago, but we have a lots of our business concurrent reversed to magento 1.9. After a check on Mage Scan website https://magescan.com/stats we see only around 4% of magento users uses the Magento 2.x.x. I would like to know the reason why Magento 2 isn't used more than that? Thanks.


I would not bother with all this, those data is not an indicator at all. do not even worry about your competitors, maybe they are silently sinking already, who cares?

from engineering point of view - this is correct way - you don't rush - usually freshly released software have lots of bugs and compatibility and expandability issues.

like many users stuck in magento 2.2.x dead branch.

  • Thank you for your reply. Yeah that's what i got in mind, but our team got the idea that Magento 1.9 is more reliable and faster (in general) than Magento 2 with all JS and CSS dependancies. Is it true? I'm not expert yet in magento but i work to get skill fast as i can! :) – Stéphane Baribeau Jul 30 '19 at 20:11
  • magento 2 is not perfect but its much better and easier to design and maintain than magento 1 – MagenX Jul 30 '19 at 22:10

    all these tools were good 5 year ago, in todays world this is irrelevant to "speed" – MagenX Jul 31 '19 at 14:09

    By performance I'm referring not only speed but scalability. For example, medium to large stores in multisite scenario magento 2 in my opinion wins. Magento 1 is perfect for micro and small businesses and will perform well if not better. Although of course there are other factors such as the number of extensions installed and the quality of code modifications. – Dominic Xigen Jul 31 '19 at 20:24

    But yeah I've lost faith with metric sites - google pagespeed etc. Run google store through google page speed and it scores low. IMHO they are setting impossible targets for modern ecommerce platforms – Dominic Xigen Jul 31 '19 at 20:27
