And the reason to try to (on purpose) make the stats biased to show Mozilla usage would be....? What? So it gives an artificial good feeling when you think that Mozilla is used by more people than it is? Why not try to get as accurate stats as possible? That's not going to happen if you deliberately sign up shitloads of Mozilla-centric (such as and sites to the stat gathering site. All it's going to do is cause results that are no longer usable.
