OSNews, Generic OSes Recently we've had a couple of articles and discussions on OSNews about browser statistics. Every now and then someone in the comments will ask what OSNews statitstics are like, and what browsers and operating systems our readers are running. Well, recently we installed a fancy new web site analytics program, Mint. I figured I might as well put it to good use by showing some of the browser and platform statistics we've gathered over the past month.

The "interesting" statistic about the number of people still using Firefox 2.x can probably be explained by BeOS/Haiku users. Firefox 2 is the last available version for BeOS/Haiku. I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.18 on BeOS.

(I've also visited here using IBrowse on an Amiga 500.)

Damn partially right. Most of BeOS user use the precompiled non official release of Firefox, and it's called "Bon Echo". But it a Firefox with different label.

Mozilla/5.0 (BeOS; U; BeOS BePC; en-US; rv:1.8.1.18) Gecko/20081114 BonEcho/2.0.0.18

It's also the last version for Mac OS 10.3 Panther and there are a lot of people that don't like the new address bar.
