IE/Netscape Stats from Zvon

Thursday October 7th, 1999

Miloslav Nic writes, "I have an anecdotal evidence about the ratio of Netscape and IE advanced users. If you look at the October statistics of the Zvon tutorials : XSL, XML, CSS, Perl it gives the ratio Netscape 58 : IE 42. These tutorials are used by people who are interested in the newest web developments and who are therefore more picky about the browser they use than an average user. So even today's Netscape 4 is preferred by many power users to IE5. And NC4 is definitively not a software pearl. If Mozilla 5 is out with full CSS, HTML 4, XML, DOM and XSLT compatibility and with reasonable size then IE is in a big trouble."

If you think that's a good percentage, you should see the stats from MozillaZine! :-)

Well, who cares about these usage numbers, once nglayout is part of the aol browser it will all be so damn cool. and nglayout based browsers will totally rule the web, and there will be a zillion KDE and GNOME and MAC and windoze browsers for everyone to use, and the versioning will be horrible but hey, its gonna be standard complaiant... just imaginge the post nglayout browser market, there will be hundreds of variants all with different relases and stuff making having to worry about 10 diff browser versions nothing. its gonna be chaos.... but nglayout will rule the web, no doubt about it.
