You'd be surprised how many people still use a dumb browser!

Thankfully though, it seems that people are wising up a bit more, as
these stats from a media website show:

Safari 4                2624
Firefox 3.5             1320
Firefox 3               690
IE 8                    501
IE 6                    465
IE 7                    417
Safari 3.2              171
Firefox 2               151
Mozilla 1.9             109
Unknown 0               56
Safari 3.1              53
Chrome 3                34
Safari 3                19
Google Webmaster Tools 0 7
Flock 2                 5
Opera 10                1

This is a media-based website, which would explain the large use of
browsers available for the Mac, but I still take it as a good sign.

Thanks,
