I haven’t looked at my site analytics for a while, so this evening I checked out some of my browser stats. It turns out that Firefox users (37% ) have overtaken Internet Explorer users (34%) on this site. So next time when some Microsoft-centric web developer gives you a site that only looks good on IE, punch him/her in the face. It’s OK. Really.
Another interesting fact: Chrome (11%) is inching in on Safari (13%). I know that Chrome as already beaten Safari in general on the web. But I guess I have quite a lot of Mac users following this blog.
Isn’t it amazing that a non-commercial open source browser has dethroned the browser that at one point commanded 90% of traffic on the web. If you’re old enough you’d remember how IE came out of almost nowhere to beat Netscape (which also had a 90%+ market share at one point I think).
Change is the only constant
