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:
|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.
