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! :-)

These stats certainly show the impact of ie being the 'default' browser on new Windows and, I suppose, MacOS systems too. Home users will use whatever browser pops up first when you connect to the net. Developers who want to create sites for those home users are then forced to do the same. Hmmm...isn't there a court case about this going on right now? ;-)
