Phil Wilson from the University of Bath has just published a summary of browser statistics so I thought it might be interesting to do a comparison.
We also use Google Analytics and it covers virtually every page on the site. We don’t distinguish internal visitors so I’ll give figures for external and total.
|Internet Explorer||79.65%||IE6: 18.5%; IE7: 68.5%; IE8: 13%|
|Internet Explorer||80.30%||IE6: 17%; IE7: 71%; IE8: 11.8%|
|Firefox||13.77%||FX2: 6%; FX3: ~90%|
Still far too many IE6 users both inside and outside the University. I will be very glad when it stops being a significant problem but browser share is dropping very slowly and none of the various proposals for encouraging people to upgrade seem very attractive to me.
Interestingly, looking at the stats for blogs.edgehill.ac.uk, Firefox usage jumps to 33.5% with IE at 56%.
