    Browser stats for CF

    Someone had asked me earlier for some stats on the browsers used to access CF daily. Here's the breakdown:

    1) IE6- 66%
    2) IE5- 15%
    3) NS6 and above- 12%
    4) Opera 7- 3%
    5) Other browsers- <1 % each

    These numbers obviously are not indicative of the net as a whole- in fact, for JavaScriptKit.com, they are quite different. At least on CF it would seem NS6+ is rather popular; of course I could probabaly tell you exactly who half of these users are .

    The stats are for unique visitors, or at least frontpage impressions only, so it should be fairly accurate.

    NS6 and above should include Mozilla as well.

    3% of people using Opera! I always found it to be a buggy/clumsy browser; I install/uninstall every new release in about one hour. Seems that some people likes it, however

    Ionsurge loves opera, he got me onto it for a while but it doesn't seem to like win98... nor does anything else for that matter.

    IE6 is my fav.

    "frontpage impressions" - that won't be me, then! I have each board that I like in a group bookmark and I keep them all open and refresh every so often. I hardly ever visit the front page

    I often put the frontpage on 600 seconds update intervals so that I can see if any people that are likely to write some interesting post or reply are online... together with the forums I often visit, such as JavaScript Progamming, HTML+CSS and General Web Building.


    Mozilla own every other browser I've ever used - including most of it's derivates such as NS6/7, Phoenix, Camino. (Mostly becausae of it's excellent JS/WebDev tools)

    Agreed. I hack the lizard to give it even better features in DOM Inspector. Wait'll you see what I've got coming down the pike, 1.5ish.

    mozilla is by far the best browser and it is the only thing I use when using linux, in windows it takes to long to start up.

    You could set it to auto start, y'know.

    Err, ok - silly question this. Is there really a big difference between the main browsers? (I am, and have been for a long time, a IE6 user)

    Well IE6 is very secure, not surprising as it was developed by the military from what I have heard, or was made with military knowledge of somesort, that I am not certain about. IE6 comes ready with Windows, so many feel no need to switch to any other browser. However, it is slow, and well does not really have any customisational features about it, like Mozilla and Opera have.

    Mozilla is, yes I know, a lot better than IE6 in terms of use, and customisability, and it is free too.

    Opera has a free version, but it has a little advert on the top right hand corner. The main version has none of these adverts. Further, in my point of view it is the fastest browser out there, and yes you can tell the difference. It is very customisable, and well I really do like it - I have been using it since v7 first came out, which now has been some time, well before December I think.

    On which planet? IE6 has more security flaws than every other browser put together.

    For standards compliance it goes - mozilla, opera 7, safari/konqueror, mac/ie5, win/ie6, win/ie5 - pretty much in that order (the order of opera 7 / safari is debatable - they both have different kinds of problems, and things one can do that the other can't, but they even-out about the same).
