Wikipedia Definition:
The term "browser wars" refers to the competition for dominance in the web browser marketplace. The term is used to denote two specific periods of time: the competition between market-dominating Netscape Navigator and its eventual defeat by Microsoft Internet Explorer during the late 1990s, and the competition from 2003 onwards between the dominating Internet Explorer and several other emerging browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera and, since mid-2008, Google Chrome.

Great info but last 3 months stacked in one category. Can this be fixed?

Anonymous 3/13/13 2:26PM

This seems to be the most useful site around for such metrics, but the information is severely impacted by monthly 100% alignment to one line item. Can this be fixed? (again...)

Anonymous 9/11/12 7:26AM

Hey StatOwl team - could you revise the stats, fixing the prior 2 months? They are reporting 100% under one category - an issue that seems to occur repetitively, rendering the information unusable. Thanks!

Anonymous 7/16/12 7:47AM

Note, February and March stats are reporting one grouping. The same issue has occurred in prior months, hope it can be resolved, as this site is chock full of good info!

Anonymous 4/13/12 12:42PM

fd - probably a lot of possible reasons for the discrepancy. My company manages numerous sites and the usage trends differ greatly based upon each user audience. A site appealing to techies will typically rank higher in FireFox, Linux, etc., while sites with broader appeal typically closely resemble the stats shown on this site.

This doesn't reflect what I am seeing on our site at a university. Registering ~700,000 external visits (excluding internal visitors) in the month of May we saw 40% using IE 7, but only 10.5% using IE 6. Firefox was over 31% and Safari was over 13%. Quite a difference from what is reported here.
