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 thought Opera would have better numbers in these "geeky" statistics.

Actually I wonder if Opera 15+ (Chromium based) is counted as Opera or as Chrome.

Don't forget that Opera dropped support for Linux and FreeBSD when they switched to their new engine, so anybody running on those platforms probably isn't using Opera anymore. At least not if they care about running patched software.

Actually, there was a release of Opera Classic a few weeks ago, I imagine to patch things up a bit...

I wonder if more people here were using it back when it was still a flexible, customisable and feature rich browser? I certainly did back then...

Dumbed down Chopera certainly doesn't seem to have set the browser world alight...
