Website stats are an odd thing. If you look at them too often and you start to think they matter, which is why I avoid looking at them for months on end.
I’ve seen a couple of browser share articles recently, so I decided to check out the spread for my website (oracle-base.com). The top 3 were a little predictable.
On the 14th March 2011, the numbers were:
- Internet Explorer: 42.32%
- Firefox: 38.68%
- Chrome: 15.19%
So IE and Firefox are declining while Chrome is on the rise.
The breakdown for IE is a little scary.
So there are about 9% of techies still using IE 6.
Look away from the stats… Look away from the stats…
Update: For Frits Hoogland, here is the Broswer-OS breakdown.
