Re: [WSG] Chrome now higher traffic than IE

2009-03-03 Thread Nick Cowie
Hi

It is the State Library of WA.

Looking further into our stats, over one third of our visitors come
from the 80 public access machines around the building, which accounts
for the heavy bias of IE7 on windows. Making these stats
unrepresentative,  sorry I did not expect that many when I start using
them.

An equal number are from within WA, with a large number of visitors
from the education (schools and universities) and government sectors
as well as local libraries.

The remaining 30% are evenly split between the rest of Australia and
the rest of the world.

RE: [WSG] Chrome now higher traffic than IE

2009-03-03 Thread Mike Kear
In my case,  the sample is fairly small, and I never suggested it was
representative of the internet as a whole.  The bigger of the two sites I've
used is a radio station.  It has 54,000 user sessions in that set of stats. 

All I was saying is it's the first time I've seen IE as not the top browser.
(one swallow does not a summer make!)

It's clear from this discussion that the numbers are all over the place.
There are people at the radio station who try to tell me that the world is
going mac and we ought to be replacing our network to macs.   I say these
stats don't support that, at least in our case, and whether or not we should
replace our network to macs needs to be for a reason other than 'that's what
everyone else is using'!  (which was never a good reason in the first
place!)

There were those who were saying not all that long ago that IE was a gonner,
and we'd all best pay attention to Opera.   Then along came Firefox,   now
I'd suggest it's anyone's race and the main contenders are IE, Firefox,
Chrome  and all the others together add up to a long way behind.

The significance for us as web developers is that all this competition is
tending towards standardisation.   If things had been different, it could
easily have gone along the lines of our browser is better because it has
all these proprietary commands it understands.   Remember how it was in the
days when Netscape and IE were the only ones on the block? They would
each try to outdo each other with new features they were developing and the
whole idea of standardisation was a pipe dream.   We had to develop a IE
version and a Netscape version of our sites.   Now, the browsers are
righting with each other to be more standard than the others. 

THAT makes life  a LOT easier for us! As long as no one has any overpowering
majority, they all have to pay attention to each other.

RE: [WSG] Chrome now higher traffic than IE

2009-03-03 Thread Mike Kear
Enough people have told me their figures are completely different to mine,
but I don't much care about that.  The point is the same - while IE is no
longer the towering majority in the web browser wars, we have a fighting
chance of bringing sanity to browsers. If IE7 became the 80%-90% browser
like IE5 once was,   then at Microsoft they'll be starting to say once more
we don't have to care about standards - we ARE the standard and everyone
else will have to match what we do!

 

Thankfully,   Firefox and Chrome are going to ensure Microsoft doesn't get
into that position again.

 

TO answer your specific question, William,  yes I use Chrome myself while
I'm developing but i hardly ever browse the site.  I usually browse the
development version of this site while I'm working on it,  and only ever go
to the production version of the site to check a page I've just uploaded is
the same as on my dev machine.   So my own browsing is not significant in
those numbers.

2009-03-03 Thread Mike Kear
As I said I hardly ever browse the production site.  It's hardly worth the
effort.Out of the 54,000 page views in the figures I was quoting
earlier, my own browsing would account for maybe 50 .   Hardly more than
that - I do my development off line using my own dev server,  then only
check a page looks like it's supposed to after I upload it.

Looking further into our stats, over one third of our visitors come
from the 80 public access machines around the building, which accounts
for the heavy bias of IE7 on windows. Making these stats
unrepresentative,  sorry I did not expect that many when I start using

An equal number are from within WA, with a large number of visitors

The remaining 30% are evenly split between the rest of Australia and

 prominent server on my two highest traffic sites.



 Google Chrome now amounts to over half the traffic on these sites. Not sure
 what that means for us as web developers, but it would certainly be
 significant for Microsoft people if it was translated across the web.   Of
 course other sites will have a different pattern, depending on the audience.



 On these two sites, the breakdown is like this:

 Unknown: 1.86%

 IE: 38.85%

 Bots,Spiders: 1.47%

 Firefox: 4.91%

 Google Chrome: 51.35%

 Opera: 0.72%

 Safari: 0.46%

 Netscape: 0.22%

 Other: 0.15% -

Re: [WSG] Chrome now higher traffic than IE

2009-03-02 Thread Nick Cowie
My blog has similar stats except it is Firefox over 50%, Safari about
10%, and Chrome around 5%

I am thinking somehow Chrome and Firefox got swap around somehow?

 Wow, that's the first time I've seen Chrome over 4%.

 Why are these stats so scewed, if I may ask?

Re: [WSG] Chrome now higher traffic than IE

hmmm - this is not reflected on our main site... from the past three days:

1.  Internet Explorer   642,173 61.98%  
2.  Firefox 286,669 27.67%  
3.  Safari  89,030  8.59%   
4.  Chrome  11,195  1.08%

which is, I imagine, par for a 'mainstream' site.

It's less than 1% this year at my site - a university library.

Of course other sites will have a different pattern, depending on the

Not entirely new, but much broader...

Re: [WSG] Chrome now higher traffic than IE

2009-03-02 Thread Nick Cowie
OK here are some other interesting stats from another major library
site, IE7 rules and Chrome is  0.5%

Browser  Website IE7/IE6
Internet Explorer 86.88% (80/20)
Firefox 9.29%   
Safari   2.17%
Chrome0.47% 
Opera   0.27%

More interesting are the wifi browsers, mainly netbooks and
inexpensive laptops, which are as likely to be  Chinese language as
English
Browser  WifiIE7/IE6
Internet Explorer  69.56%  (67/33)  
Firefox20.42%   
Safari   8.64%  (Mac + iPod + iPhone + Symbian)
Opera   1.09%   
Chrome 0.07%
Blazer   0.06%  
Playstation Portable   0.05%

IE6 has gone from 1 in 5 on the regular site to 1 in 3 of all IE
connections  in this sample of 10k.

Of interest Chrome on Windows is only slightly more popular than
Blazer or PSP (and less than Safari on Symbian or IE8)

Fascinating.

Can you provide some demographic context to this library site?

RE: [WSG] Chrome now higher traffic than IE

2009-03-02 Thread Mark Huppert
I don't where Nick is from, but part of the 
explanation in our case is hits from computer
labs on campus. The biggest set of labs have IE, 
Firefox and Safari but Chrome is not in the build.

I would humbly suggest that a blog site for geeks
will naturally get lots hits from the latest 
cutting-edge whatever. Sites like that do not 
represent the general population very accurately.
