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.

Spoofing as Safari

Along with someone else's comments regarding having Javascript and cookies blocked messing with the statistics, there are also those who spoof their browsers for whatever reason.

I use OWB on AmigaOS, but I have it spoofing as Safari because there are some websites that refuse to work properly when it declares as OWB. Gmail is the one that springs to mind, and there are others... So, I'm probably in your statistics there but unfortunately not in the correct category.
