The usage of browsers.

Some time ago (See Web design and browsers) Microsoft declared Internet Explorer 6 to be dead.
Today arstechnica.com has an article about the use of browers. The site writes, that 49.78% use Internet Explorer to look at web pages.

If we take a look at w3schools.com we see some different numbers:

2012 Internet Explorer Firefox Chrome Safari Opera
May 18.1 % 35.2 % 39.3 % 4.3 % 2.2 %
April 18.3 % 35.8 % 38.3 % 4.5 % 2.3 %
March 18.9 % 36.3 % 37.3 % 4.4 % 2.3 %
February 19.5 % 36.6 % 36.3 % 4.5 % 2.3 %
January 20.1 % 37.1 % 35.3 % 4.3 % 2.4 %

 

My own small statistics say that 103% of my visitors use Internet Explorer.

There sure is a difference in those numbers. Who is right? I don’t know. Use the statistics on your own page to see what your visitores use to see it. That way you are on more secure ground.  Altogether is a regular analysis of the statistics for your page a good tool for the enhancement ofyour site.
