Site Browsing Stats, January 2005

Time once again to look at the browser stats on the ol’ weblog. Here’s the final numbers for January:

Browser              Hits      %age
-------              ----    ------
FireFox             49976    40.5 %
Internet Explorer   32787    26.5 %
Safari              12953    10.5 %
Unknown             10642     8.6 %
Mozilla              6224     5.0 %
NetNewsWire          4086     3.3 %
Netscape             2372     1.9 %
Opera                1868     1.5 %
OmniWeb               805     0.6 %
Konqueror             526     0.4 %
Others               1027     0.8 %

As compared with last month, Firefox has crept up slightly (.4%), while IE has lost over 4%, in bits and pieces. For example, NetNewsWire (+0.7%), “Unknown” (+0.7%), and even Netscape(!) (+0.7%). Not sure what it all means.

Of course, the numbers are likely to be skewed due to comment and referer spam; but nearly all of that shows up as IE. I’ve been trying to fight that stuff more actively over the past month, which might explain why IE has fallen off a bit, allowing smaller browsers to increase a bit.
