Hi All - Thought you may be interested in this from NetApplications who release browser statistics based on the 160 million people who visit a network of 40,000 sites using its web analytic service. It's slightly biased towards usage in North America and Europe but considering the populations of those areas should provide a relatively accurate guide:
As you can see, Internet Explorer and Firefox account for around 90% of the total market, I was a tad surprised to see Opera's low share.
Hey Dave - Excellent....thanks mate. Your figures pretty much match the statistics reported by Cnet, interestingly they make a similar comment about the FF share being higher because of their savvy visitors. Overall though they all reflect the huge market share enjoyed by I.E. and FF, around the 90% mark combined. Not much hope for Opera and the others which have been around for some time, maybe a glimmer of hope for the newcomer, Chrome.
