94.5% global share for IE?!? Yeah, right! Now, takeaway all those that are spoofing their browser user agent string, like any of those Opera users that haven't bothered to change the default UA settings in their browser, and you'll most likely see much different stats. If it weren't for people letting their non-IE browser spoof as a version of IE, then the overall market share for Microsoft's lame-assed browsers would probably be at least 5% less than current stats.
