    I was just wondering what percentage of users here on Macrumors are coming from IE, and what percentage come from Safari? How many pc/mac users are on the site?

    That's weird, from how everyone on these boards praises Firefox, I would have thought more people used it...

    *Slaps wrist* Shame on you! :eek: :p :D

    I don't know about other users, but my traffic on evenings and weekends is Mac/FF and my traffic during the week is sometimes Win/FF, because I use our lab computers, although recently, I've been bringing my iBook with me, so I can run simulations on one screen and surf on the other. :D

    When I'm at work (and forced to use Windows) I use a local install of Firefox as it's the best browser on Windows. I find that it's not quite as Mac-like as I'd want it to be, so I use Safari on OSX. I'd imagine that quite a few people feel the same...

    OmniWeb, Lynx, Camino, iCab, and uh.... thats it for the top of my head. I bet I'm forgetting some.

    There're a few regulars who use Shiira too. And maybe a couple of Opera'rs. If Camino and Mozilla are considered part of the other group, then I bet they're the biggest part...

    IE is bad, but whatever floats their boat

    i guess im part of the unknowns, since i use Camino just about exclusively, although im debating going back to Safari (been getting too many pop-ups)

    I know, I have both FireFox and Netscape installed but I don't like their interface on windows.

    i think OmniWeb is the only browser that is NOT free out there, unless you count paying for an OS a cost for a browser (ie Safari and IE)

    Camino is free, as are the vast majority of em out there


    i just want to see some improvement in Camino, its been a while since an update was released for it

    Is the % for MSIE for Mac users?
    If it is i'm VERY surprised to see that people still use IE on macs.

    Ah, yes... forgot about them. :)

    Actually IE is free. Linkety And it is "integrated" into Win98 and up... but it was free for Win95, too. Just wasn't integrated into the entire operating system.
