Is there a good site or source of information where I can find out percentages of users across the web are using which particular browsers and their respective versions?

Thanks

w3's results arn't always a good reflection of the average trend. As they say themselves on their website, their statistics lean much more toward newer technologies, so I wouldnt rely on w3 for "average" stats, unless of course your website is aimed at the same target audience (web developers who are likely to have newer than average browsers and OS's).

I find the statistics published by TheCounter.com (http://www.thecounter.com/stats) are a little more balanced. This is probably because they pull their stats from thousands of sites who use their visit-counter, all with different target audiences, resulting in a hopefully more reliable set of statistics.

Hope this helps.

The same problem with the stats on W3Schools like they mention, you are getting stats from people are interested in web development and are more likely to use different stuff than your average user.

One thing we can all agree on is that chances are high that the average Joe Sweatsock is using some version of internet explorer.
