Like some people have already said, browser statistics should be taken with a grain of salt, especially as the exact methods of generating the statistics (the sources of data, how the user-agent string is parsed to categorize the browsers etc...) are not known.

But ignoring these uncertainities for a moment, it's interesting to notice that in this newsletter, the total percentage of IE versions is 94.9%, in pressbox 7 ( <> ) 95.3% and in pressbox 4 ( <> ) 96.6%. Ignoring the uncertainities, this would mean a drop of 1.7%. Maybe Mozilla and Opera actually have managed to do something?
