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.

Windows and Internet Explorer are evil!
@stee1rat : And here’s me thinking they are all sweetness and light. 🙂
Why do you think so? 🙂
The IE6 users are probably using a corporate managed desktop.
Surely people read the blog for the travel, movie and book reviews 🙂
You do have a point there Pete. 🙂
Is it possible the entire Opera development team is reading oracle-base? That’s the only plausible explanation I can think of for it ranking as high as it did 🙂 Back in the day it was the only capable mobile browser, but those days are done. Surprised mobile didn’t rank any higher.
The scary thing about website stats is when you realise that 90% of your site traffic is from Microsoft msnbots, and consequently your site gets shut down because it’s overloaded the hosts server.
It’s not like anyone actually uses live.com do they???
