What's MSIE share on your website?

Post by erk »

MSIE browsers had 57% hits on my site in November. This month it's only 47% so far. I would like to know if it's just my site or is it general trend. If it continues to lost share on my page, in one year I will be removing support for crappy browsers from my code. :D

Code: Select all

   IE    Mozilla   Firefox   Opera
   62%     27%       3%        4%    Sept (NB Moz/FF stats likely to be inaccuratly split)
   64%     12%      15%        4%    Oct
   66%     4%       22%        3%    Nov
   62%     4%       25%        3%    Dec (to date)
So in general terms, very little noticeable trend in IE vs Gecko usage so far

Now considering you can change branding in some browsers etc. I have only seen it in Linux situations, so I can't comment on windows based browsers, now add to that that I would assume that for the hell of it and no other reason alot of geeky linux dudes, might or may change that to read a different browser etc ??

Whats the OS ratio out of curiosity

That feature is it overridable server side to get the real browser etc ?? out of curiosity.

In general, you just have to assume that the browser isn't lying to you.

If you feel like pulling out a IE browser trying to be something better, then just ask it for HTTP_ACCEPT, and find application/xml+xhtml. IE doesn't have this value in HTTP_ACCEPT, and it can't be forged AFAIK in IE, thus highlighting an IE browser.

These might be of interest as they are from the site in my sig, and include the image requests that come from all over the web and cover a lot of the 'general web user' share, hence giving a broader view than tech related sites.

Code: Select all

November:
# 	Hits		Percentage	User Agent
1 	10,009,263	82.26%	MSIE 6.0
2 	1,518,512	 12.48%	Mozilla/5.0
3 	242,882		2.00%	 MSIE 5.5
4 	152,619		1.25%	 MSIE 5.0

November 2004

Code: Select all

Browser			Percentage
Internet Explorer		51.49%            
Mozilla					40.20%
Opera						5.83%
Other						2.48%
So far in December, Mozilla is winning out 48% to 38% for IE. That'll change fast, I assume.

80%, down from 99.5% in January.
But then, Rollerbladers aren't always the most technically proficiant of people, and the fact that another browser exists is probably unknown to many.

For those who may be interested ;)

I have noticed in the last few months that Mozilla is catching up by incredible amounts. How much longer before they totally whipe out MSIE?

I have my own ways, yet usually you can find a handful of statistics through the admin panel of your server.
