August Stats

This month, visits were down (184) mostly because our posting was sporadic (only 29 posts for the entire month). Nothing really surprising on the OS front: Windows XP continues to dominate (66.8%), Vista is in a distant second place (19.6%) and Mac in an even-more-distant third (5.4%). The remainder (8.2%) were various oddballs including some Windows 2000 and Windows NT.

On the browser front, Firefox and MSIE continue to duke it out. Combining the various versions gives a dead heat of 43.4% for Firefox vs. 44% for MSIE. It's been a while since I took Stats, but given that a single visit this months counts for over a half percent, I think the difference is well below the level of significance. Chrome edged out Safari 4.3% to 3.3% and the remaining 5% was the usual odd assortment.

Interesting to note that MSIE 6 took a header off a cliff, and only Firefox 3.0 and 3.5 made an appearance this month. MSIE 8 still lags badly behind MSIE 7, and Firefox 3.5 just barely edged past 3.0. Not sure why people are so reluctant to change; I've used IE 8 and FF 3.5 and both are significant improvements over their predecessors.

OK; enough of boring the audience. I need to do some internet stuff for Debbie.
