Browser and OS Statistics for October

I’d like to share some interesting statistics with my readers, I know it’s not quite the end of the month, butย after more than 220,000 page views from nearly 170,000 visitors, it’s pretty safe to say these numbers wont budge too much in the next few days, unless there is some freak super explosion of diggs, stumbles, deliciousness, reddits and maybe a slashdot or two.

The most intersting statistic to me, is the fact that damn near 80% of all visitors are using Firefox.ย  This includes all operating systems, which is pretty significant when you compare that to how many users are utilizing Windows.ย  This site attracts very technical readers, which would explain the awesome google-fu that some people are using to find this site.

I wish I had more IE users visiting to convert to Firefox…

Inmyopinion I could say that the windows users are reading because your interesting posts about switchin to Linux and dealin with other sitsuations related.
Im using windows currently because I cant find a suitable distribution for my laptop.

Firefox is my preference for home. I, unfortunately, am at work and our PC’s Group Policy blocks installation of any “unauthorized” software such as Firefox. Just food for thought… Some of those 9%
IE visitors (such as me) are surfing on a controlled surfboard.

Altered user agent string ++

I’ve had banking sites tell me I didn’t have good enough software to view them, ’cause I was using FF2 on Ubuntu.

I lie to those that discriminate, but I do make an effort to switch my user agent back quickly, you know, to represent my brothers in stats like these.

Precisely every legacy and new-look IT vendor has its own plagiarize on making the whole observations center more programmable via software and less dependent on specialized, proprietary and over the odds hardware.
