Browser Statistics for Technometria


58% of visitors used IE. Firefox accounted for 28%. (click to enlarge)

As you can see from the chart on the right, the visitors to Technometria do not follow the Internet's standard browser usage patterns. The top browser is, not surprisingly, Internet Explorer with 58%. Even so, that's far below the mid-90s that IE commands on the Internet in general. Second place went to Firefox with almost 28%. Third and fourth went to Safari and Mozilla with 6.6% and 3.4% respectively. The statistics are for the period Jan 1, 2005 through Mar 9, 2005.

It probably goes without saying that the smaller the percentage is for IE on any given Web site, the more technically savvy its user base. It would be interesting to see those numbers across a wide spectrum of Web sites. At any rate, congratulations to Technometria readers for being "smarter than the average bear." IE is a veritable cesspool of security holes and ought to be put out of its misery.
