Firefox dominating IE? I think not.

Since we started to use Google Analytics last month, I was itching to seeing what the percentage of FireFox vs IE visitors we would have to sheriff.org. Well with a good months worth of tracking on over 1.6 million page views and 212,000 unique visitors, the results are in.

IE: 89%
Firefox: 6%

All other weird browsers take up the rest. Surprisingly Safari is like only 2% if that. Opera’s user base is laughable. So what does this mean? It means that IE still has a strong hold on the browser market with the visitors to sheriff.org. While Firefox is gaining ground, it no where near dominating IE by any means.

Below is the total breakdown:

Internet Explorer|    191175
Firefox|    13669
Safari|    4153
Mozilla Compatible Agent|    2046
Netscape|    1210
Mozilla|    257
Opera|    196
T-Mobile Dash Mozilla|    64
HTC-8500|    47
SAMSUNG-SGH-I607|    43
HTC-8100|    41
Konqueror|    39
Camino|    24
gzip|    14
SquidClamAV_Redirector 1.8.2,gzip|    2

    I think yes…
    We have a percentage of 40% on firefox. The IE is nearly 55% and Opera is about 3%. But i guess in Germany the users of Firefox are much more than in the US.

    I am sorry, but it will not give you actual results. In firefox you can set user-agents for IE.🙂 good for developers. Best example is Netscape (withdrawn support) you can see different behaviors & can get feel of IE and mozilla.

    Still IE has advantage because it is bundled with OS. & windows users are more on earth🙂 because of simplicity. Only developers or techy guys try different paths
