BrowserWatch's Agent Details stats are rather interesting, but I do not think they are an accurate representation of Internet wide web browser usage.

For example :

2.38% -- MSIE/5.0 (Windows) 2.99% -- MSIE/5.01 (Windows) 4.94% -- MSIE 6.0 (Windows) 6.72% -- MSIE/5.5 (Windows) ========= 17.03%

1.13% -- MSIE/5.1b1 (Macintosh) 4.16% -- MSIE/5.0b1 (Macintosh) 5.68% -- MSIE/5.12 (Macintosh) 10.6% -- MSIE/4.x (Macintosh) 44.0% -- MSIE/5.0 (Macintosh) ======== 65.57%

I only snagged the percentages over 1% because I did not want to spend time adding up everything.

Anyway, this sampling is enough to indicate that Mac users dominate at BrowserWatch.

The stats presented at thecounter.com seem a bit more realistic, but they are still far from scientific. If Mozilla specific sites (ie Mozillazine, mozilla.org, Bugzilla, MozillaQuest, etc) started using counters from there, then Mozilla's "global" performance would be given a boost. I have no idea how many hits those sites get a month, but it looks like it would only take about 6 million hits to gain a percentage point. Since there are probably some "IE only" sites out there using these counters, I would think that would skew the numbers a bit in IE's favor too.
