Browser Wars update

Since I was on the subject of browsers (and have finally "come out" against Firefox) I thought I would have a look at my browser stats again. This is for 2009 so far...

Go Internet Explorer! Okay make that "Go Internet Explorer 7". IE8 appears to have taken the world less than fully by storm with 2.7%, and just what the hell are 42% of my hits coming from IE6 for?! Seriously, IE6 was released in 2001 and even Microsoft wouldn't have the gall to call it "secure" now. Move on. Firefox was in third place with 10% of traffic, which would presumably give Bill Gates a big smile.

And my personal favourite non-work browser, Chrome? 11th place, with less than 1% of traffic and worryingly one place below IE FIVE.

Whoa.

And whoever the two jokers trying to use the site using IE3 and Netscape 5 were should go away and think about your life choices.

  1. IE 7 @ 37%
    Firefox @ 29%
    IE6 @ 16%
    IE8 @ 1.1%!
    Chrome 0.22%
    Give up on chrome for gods sake and join the firefox revolution. The only reason its not top is that people still have IE7 as their default browser at work!
