In the News NetApplications has released its latest browser market share figures, and these figures show that Chrome has overtaken Safari as the number three browser worldwide, behind Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE, by the way, continues to lose popularity rather fast.

That is very interesting, but what about OS stats?

Also, I am curious if there are any really weird combinations, like IE or Safari on Linux that show up in your stats, if you can see that at all?

I've been meaning to try it myself. I might be stuck using the standalone set of IE versions that someone has packaged nicely. That's one way it could happen though.

I've also been tempted to change my ID response string. It's often used to tell a website one is using IE when they actually have Firefox (some IE only sites work just fine except for choking on the browser identifier). The thought of messing with some sites browser visit stats tickles me. Maybe hammer an IE favoring site with FF and Chrome visits so the visit stats suggest that they should target standard HTML instead of IE specific crap.

The topic of this site would make the browser/platform visit stats interesting though. Top five percentages is interesting but top bizarre combinations....
