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?

*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

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

Yes I know *shameful*

I want to get a Mac but I don't have the money, but when I do I will buy one ;)

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...

I'm sorry but people who still use Windows and MSIE just plain disgust me!

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)

Nah, using Windows, that's understandable. but MSIE. That's just cold. :p :D
I know, I have both FireFox and Netscape installed but I don't like their interface on windows.

Completley forgot about those :eek:

I think OmniWeb and Camio are quite good but they are not free :mad:

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

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.
