Getting 80K+ hits and 16K+ visitors per month with NN4. Kind of puts a damper on using anything more than basic CSS 1.0. Booo!

10% users have NN 4, no CSS for me

you can use
@import "style2.css";
@import url(style3.css);
to serve css to other browsers than nn4

Are you sure that 10% are real nn4 users and not mainly robots, mozilla or firefox users identifying themselves as nn4 ?
more than 50 % of nn4 identifiers are fakes in my case.

Not if you choose to be forward-thinking.

Thank goodness Playstation and Xbox came along so we could all stop using those horrid Atari games. Technology changes. There are always people that hold on, and they always get left behind, eventually.

There's a theory that the only people left using N4 are designers testing sites in N4 and one old fellow in Michigan who refuses to upgrade. Truth, or rumour?

Hi Beanboy,
How are your stats generated?

What is the target market of your site?

My sites show Netscape 4 disappearing, All versions of Netscape only made up 1.7 % of visitors here last month, but this is a site for web developers so you could hope they had decent browsers. Wink

Last year my site was getting 200k unique and 1 million page hits per day (that's right, per day) and if I remember correctly, not many people used NN, and that was a year ago.

I tend to believe these stats are far more accurate:

Take care,
