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:

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?

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

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

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

However, commenting on his ungodly chest hair does.


Does anybody have any of those ''David Astlehoff'' pictures?

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.

Firebird


Um... is that just a version of mozilla set to follow WinXP''s texture settings? Or is a site with Firebird skins? If not, you might want to look into giving the OFFICIAL link.

HAND!

Internet Explorer = Mosaic
Mozilla = Mosaic Killer

Links seems to identify itself as Links.

Netscape = browser, Gecko = rendering/layout engine.
