I maintain 2 sites and wrote the code for a third site, now maintained elsewhere

browser stats


IE 82 .86% (IE7 58.62%, IE8 34 .48%, IE6 6 .90%) FF 14 .29% Safari 2.86%


IE 81 .92% (IE8 52.83%, IE7 36 .79%, IE6 10 .38%) FF 14 .53% Safari 2.78% Other 0.67%


IE 75 % (IE7 63.64%, IE8 26 .26%, IE6 10 .10%) FF 19 .32% Safari 4.58% Chrome 0.76% Netscape 0.38%

these are all general use sites, not web related like Envato is. I am really surprised at the large percentage usage of IE8 , didn’t realize it would be that high. Not surprised by the numbers used by non-IE browsers, the general public just does not have the same appreciation for modern browsers that users on this site would, as expected.

I think you will begin to see a large increase in IE8 users as many Windows Vista users will be upgrading to Windows 7 which uses IE8 . Not to mention purchasers of new PC’s which will have Windows 7 installed with IE8 as well.

And just for comparison’s sake, developers tend to use Firefox more often, and designers tend to use Safari more often (because of more Mac users). Below are the stats from my techy blog:

Firefox 66.10% Safari 10.04% Chrome 9.55% IE 8 .85% Opera 3.16%
