In my earlier post, I had provided stats from Sitemeter that listed the Browser share of my blog visitors. I got this interesting poll from BusinessWeek Online and wanted to share it with everyone. Ofcourse, the Total Votes are only 615 now, which is pretty low. I had earlier presented the stats of 10,000 hits (inclusive of repeating visits). Whats interesting is that the IE share was about 85% there, but its only 23.9% here. Im hoping that these 615 votes at the BusinessWeek site are unique (atleast most of them). By the way, I voted for Firefox.
I will do a follow up on this and present the updated bar graph soon!
So, what would you guys vote for? We can do the Maths here! Leave me a comment; ill add your vote to this data base and generate a bar graph 🙂
Like I promised, here is the update. I would like to point out that its better if we don’t compare these stats with the “market share” of each browser. The sample size here is very small. When we look at the market share, we consider millions of users. Besides, most of these people who entered the poll read Business Week Online (like me 🙂 ) and secondly, are interested “enough” to take part in this poll. So there are statistical errors for sure. There is a higher likelihood for people reading magazines online to be more tech savvy than an average internet user. And this might be contributing to the high percentage of Firefox. What is more important is to observe the gradual change in the browser share as more number of people vote.
