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 was using Chrome until the official Java releases for Mac became 64-bit. I now use Safari.

There were some work-arounds to get Chrome working with out-dated Java builds but the work-arounds didn't seem to persist over time. Also, at some point, it just seemed wrong to continue to have to use an out-dated 32 bit version of Java just because Google wouldn't get off their ass to release a proper 64 bit Chrome for Macs.

P.S. There's 1 site I need to access for work that requires a proprietary Java plugin in order to log into the system. Otherwise, 32-bit Chrome with no Java integration would be fine for me.
