Recently I did a compilation of my blog's user statistics to investigate the type of Web users visited my blog. These records were taken between 19 July 2010 and 12 Nov 2010, a snapshot of the last 4 months. The percentages of the types of browsers my visitors use include Microsoft IE (55.19%), Firefox (28.63%), Safari (8.61%), Google Chrome (6.85%), Opera (0.62%), and others (0.10%). Noting that I mainly, interchangeably use Firefox and Safari, so from the data it gives a good reflection of my actual users.
After all the hype about Web browsers wars between Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft IE; which many "tech savvy" users can witness, the data presented here still shows that Microsoft IE is still much ahead than the rest. Though I not saying that their users rate have not fallen, but much of the users of the Web still trust and believe in them.

IE user use the Dark Force !
Benou: I'm surprised with my data collection too. I read the W3Schools results too and thus decided to check mine to see if it has any correlations with theirs. The anecdotal evidence suggest that W3Schools visitors could be mainly developers, thus it does not give a good sample of Web users preferred browsers in general. Meanwhile I am still collecting more samples for my further analysis. More similar types of samples from different blogs should provide us a clearer picture. Stay tune for my future discoveries.
didn't know there were so many who still prefer IE..
