OSNews, Generic OSes

It's been a while since we've done one of these, so here we go: some detailed platform and browser statistics for OSNews. They're collected using Google Analytics, between 12 April and 12 May. As always, these statistics are only relevant for OSNews, and can, in no way, be extrapolated to any other site.

I reckon that the stats for mobile browsers are higher than reported, because many browsers are redirected to the mobile version of osnews, that probably does not contain the tracking code for this statistics engine.


Or, the stats for mobile browser could be under-reported as most of the mobile browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera) are configured to request the desktop site by default. I believe the AOSP Browser is the only one that defaults to mobile, and can't be set to desktop on a permanent basis.

I know all my mobile browsers (Chrome and Opera Classic) are configured for desktop.
