In keeping with an IE centric co-worker, I would like to request my readers to post their browser usage percentages as comments to this post. All I am looking to understand is the overall percentage of IE users versus Mozilla based browsers. There are some caveats.

  1. Most statistics fromblog sites are somewhat jaded. I say this with a smiling face because bloggers tend to be more tech savy in most cases and are more prone to using real browsers. For example: this blog has 40% of its hits from Mozilla based browsers.
  2. Staistics from sites which attract a *lot* of International visitors do not count because International users tend to use IE for the most part. (I might be wrong about that assumption)
  3. Every peice of statistic has some pecualirities associated with it. If you have one or a couple, please do not forget to mention them. So, I am looking for your sitename, your breakup of Mozilla and IE usage percentages, anything peculiar/different about your site and a little comment about the makeup of your site.

All of that being said, please do not hesitate to leave your stats if you run a blog or an International site, any information is good information! :)

Thank you! I will tally up the information and post the results after one week.

    Internet Explorer (36.47 %)
    Mozilla/Mozilla Compatible (17.28%)
    Netscape (2.92%)

    The other 43.33% are mainly RSS Aggregators led by Sharpreader at 3.78%. For 2004, the site has been visited a total of 359,555 times. And, it is definitely a weblog.

    Netscape 7 2362 13.73%
    MSIE 5 1527 8.87%
    Netscape 3 62 0.36%
    Other 53 0.30%

    MSIE 4 27 0.15%
    WebTV 1 4 0.02%
    Opera 6 3 0.01%

    Netscape 14.30% – MSIE 85.29% – Other 0.34%

    I just have a little personal blog site, where I sometimes have photo entries that I post to photo memes such as Photo Friday, which generates more traffic to my site than on a photo-less day.

    I have a weblog where I write about news, the media, culture, technology, philosophy, blogging, and pretty much anything else that interests me. I also have a photoblog at the same domain. Here are my stats:

    Browsers

    • MS Internet Explorer: 34582 / 43%
    • Mozilla: 30758 / 38.3%
    • Unknown: 7677 / 9.5%
    • Safari: 2210 / 2.7%
    • Opera: 1846 / 2.2%
    • Netscape: 1686 / 2.1%
    • LibWWW: 526 / 0.6%
    • Lynx: 404 / 0.5%
    • Firebird: 270 / 0.3%
    • W3C HTML Validator: 107 / 0.1%
    • Others: 216 / 0.2%

    The “unknown” group mostly appears to consist of RSS readers and some of the lesser known search engine spiders.

    Operating Systems

    • Windows: 64874 / 80.8%
    • Unknown: 9773 / 12.1%
    • Macintosh: 3586 / 4.4%
    • Linux: 1776 / 2.2 %
    • FreeBSD: 193 / 0.2 %
    • Sun Solaris: 61 / 0%
    • WebTV: 16 / 0%
    • OS/2: 3 / 0 %

    The “unknown” grouping here is the same as the one for browsers (when Awstats doesn’t recognize something, it gives you the user agent).
