I''m wondering, does GDNet keep any sort of stats about what internet browsers visitors are using? If so, can we get some of these? If not, can we get some stats tracker thing on? :D

Yes it does...I know Myopic Rhino gives stats from time to time in threads about browsers. Not sure if they''re publicly available somewhere.

I know it's not exactly what you asked for, but here's the stats for my site from November:
1 	18194 	18.90% 	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 12 	15146 	15.74% 	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)3 	6214 	6.46% 	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 14 	4879 	5.07% 	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)5 	3868 	4.02% 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko6 	3083 	3.20% 	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)7 	2634 	2.74% 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko8 	2153 	2.24% 	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)9 	1050 	1.09% 	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows 98; DigExt)10 	995 	1.03% 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5a) Geck11 	978 	1.02% 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko12 	763 	0.79% 	Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux)13 	742 	0.77% 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko14 	716 	0.74% 	Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/200310015 	711 	0.74% 	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90)

The people who view my site are probably of a similar demographic to those who look at gamedev, so maybe that will give you a rough idea of the distribution.

Benjamin, I''m not sure I understand those stats... it seems at first glance like everyone''s using Mozilla, but IE6 is mentioned in there too. Care to explain?

I was just thinking the same thing.

And what is Gecko?

You guys don''t know? IE identifies itself as Mozilla ... compatible MSIE, etc. I thought everybody knew that

IIRC it''s a browser. Uses the Netscape rendering engine, I believe.

I think he just removed all IE browsers... as you can see the percentages doesn''t add up to 100%

We collect stats constantly, but the server admins don''t compile them very often for me. The latest numbers I have are from April, but they should at least give you an idea. Note that these numbers reflect how the browser identifies itself, not necessarily which browsers are actually being used (for example, Opera identifies itself as IE by default, so it places lower than you might expect).

MS Internet Explorer 83.1 %
Netscape 9.3 %
Opera 4.5 %
Unknown 1.6 %
Konqueror 0.3 %
Galeon 0.2 %
Safari 0.2 %
TelePort Pro 0.1 %

What is that post icon supposed to be? The best I can come up with is a flying squirrel.

*edit: turning my head sideways turned it into a Rhino. I feel silly now ;(

Do Moz, Firebird, and Epiphany all ident themselves as Netscape?

BTW Dave, your new Rhino icon is no better than the old one

By default Opera identifies as MSIE 5--or atleast it does on my system.

What''s the historical basis for IE identifying itself as Mozilla? Does the Mozilla name go as far back as to the Mosaic days?

Hint: Commenting on Dave''s icon won''t get you a moderator status anymore.

However, commenting on his ungodly chest hair does.

Heh... I''m probably 0.299% of that 0.3%. That is sad. For many, many reasons.

I don''t know--but links doesn''t like this site''s forums (last I checked) so, it probably does not make as large of standing.
