Hi,

I have some more number friendly statistics from Friday, May 26th...

The browser, as well as the OS stats, add up to almost 100% in these more
recent stats.  I have also included the OS statistics so you can see the
correlation between WebTV and IE 2, as mention by Robin L. 

(By the way, the last time around I just copied and pasted the numbers, like
this time, so I have no explanation for why the numbers equaled 108%.)

---- Browser usage breakdown, who uses what specific type of browser
63% = MSIE 5.x and up
17% = MSIE 4.x
16% = Netscape 4.x
1.4% = MSIE 3
1% = Netscape 3
..7% = MSIE 2
..02% = Netscape 2
..02% = Opera 3

---- Operating System, who is using what
Windows 98 - 64.3%
Windows 95 - 20.8%
Windows NT - 6.2%
Windows 2000 - 1.2%
Macintosh - 3.1%
WebTV - .68%
Windows 3.x - .35%
Linux - .29%
SunOS - .11%
--------------------------


As you can see, .7% of people are using IE 2 and .68% are using WebTV....

Also, thanks for the WebTV frame info(, Robin).

Richard

Hm, those StatMarket figures add up to 108.04%. I suspect you've made a typo
somewhere. If not, some browsers are getting counted in more than one
category.

The WebTV User-Agent: line includes "MSIE 2.0". I suspect nearly all of the
.7% share in the StatMarket statistics above is WebTV.

WebTV tries to approximate frames using tables. This means that on WebTV,
among other side effects, scrolling down causes all the 'frames' to scroll
like part of a single document.
