Apple was right about the web browser

    Not where you live.
    I use PC's all day and Mac's for fun. I also do a bunch of stuff on my friends PC's and the one thing that absolutely blows me away is what a pile of steaming junk IE is.

    Trying to do stuff results in pop-ups, porn ads and spyware. It's amazing. I use Firefox on my PC at work and totally forgot how bad IE is.

    Of course, this is not just a result of IE being a lousy browser, but the huge amount of plain junk out there for Windows. I seriously hope Apple doesn't ever get that kind of market share.

    Yeah.... and Mac OS has 1/2 the market share of Vista (which is 1/10th of WinXP).

    Too much (crakberry, Palm) isn't even listed.

    Doesn't mean anything. Besides, what is it based on?

    Sorry, but that marketshare is pretty bad when they don't disclose how it was obtained. I pulled these stats off our host for a website in the action sports market that I maintain.

    They are very similar to what I see on the other sites that I maintain.

    Windows 425220 77.8 %
    Macintosh 110889 20.3 %
    Unknown 7242 1.3 %
    Linux 2399 0.4 %
    WebTV 44 0 %
    Unknown Unix system 35 0 %
    FreeBSD 27 0 %
    AmigaOS 20 0 %
    BeOS 20 0 %
    OS/2 14 0 %

    Here's Browser Stats:
    MS Internet Explorer No 309630 56.7 %
    Mozilla No 175382 32.1 %
    Safari No 46383 8.4 %
    Opera No 7158 1.3 %
    Netscape No 3500 0.6 %
    Unknown ? 2351 0.4 %
    UP.Browser (PDA/Phone browser) No 918 0.1 %
    Firebird No 114 0 %
    K-Meleon No 102 0 %
    OmniWeb No 78 0 %

    The reality is this... They need to disclose how they got these stats to mean ANYTHING at all.

    What is Macintel? They don't even tell you what it is? Is it really important the processor you have over the OS you run?

    If it were up to me, I'd keep the Mac underground where the true fans want to keep it.
