Fun browser stats for

Today I was looking through the Google Analytics for our site.  What really interested me was the stats on the various browsers that are used to view our content.

Broswer Visits %Visits
Firefox 17,847 47.56%
I.E. 17,617 46.95%
Opera 1,071 2.85%
Safari 583 1.55%
Mozilla 287 0.76%

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Firefox usage rivals that of IE when viewing our content.  The reason that this kinda surprises me is that according to, global IE usage is about 63% compared to Firefox's 27%. 

Anyway, thought it was kinda cool to see that Firefox usage was high for our site.

BTW, turns out about 5% of our traffic is still using dialup.  WOW, that must suck:)

Till next time,

Could the dialup users be mobile broadband users?
