  1. Well, this was for fun and giggles. Nope, it's IE as a whole. Look at http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp for the latest info: IE7 26.3%, IE6 22.3%. The older versions are somewhere around 0.1% or lower. That's the statistics I plotted.What is interesting is how small dent IE7 managed to made to the whole browser market. IE8 has to be some really excellent and super browser if Microsoft wants to catch up. Competition is now extremely hard!But as said many times over. Statistic are statistics, and general statistics are even worse. You have to know your own surfers. In Finland Firefox has a share of 51.8%, Internet Explorere 40.5% and falling rapidly...Chrome is interesting. Let's see what happens...
  2. Hello! For your amusement, I thought to share this with you.I took the data from:http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp and made some basic analysis.The following files are attached: layoutengines.png -- Chart showing the popularity of layout engines. browsers.png -- Chart showing the popularity of Internet browsers. browserstats.zip -- Zip package that contains: browserstats.pl -- Perl script used for data processing. browserstats.csv -- Processed data in CSV format. browserstats.xls -- Excel sheet used for plotting and analysis. browserstats.pdf -- Finished charts in PDF format. Results are: Microsoft Internet Explorers (browsers using Trident layout engine) dominates now only 50% of the browser market. The share of Internet Explorers is dropping quite steadily by 0.6%/month. That means 7.2%/year. If this trend continues, the market share of Internet Explorer reaches zero by the year 2015. I hope I live that long. browserstats.zip
