We're having a big company meeting today where we're going to discuss how to progress etc, and I want to bring up the fact that we currently code sites for IE only.

Can someone show me some statistics that show the increasing popularity of Mozilla/Firefox/Opera, hopefully showing something along the lines of "loads of people will be using these in a year or two" kinda stuff? Smile

Cheers

Browser stats needed

Can't help but feel that those results are biassed in that most people who look at W3schools are developers, not "ordinary" users - 15% is far too hgih a figure for Mozilla amongst the general population!

Yeah, obviously stats from our own sites are the most important, but the software we use (webtrends) seems to have poor browser detection. I guess "other netscape compatible" is mozilla/firefox?

Hi seb,
If you want to set up your own stats you could use http://www.appcreator.com/visitorsnif.php to detect the browsers,
then store the data in a database and generate the stats as needed.

Hope that helps
