IE7 most used Browser

"We are extremely excited to work with Microsoft to bring Me.dium to the IE7 users," said Kimbal Musk, CEO of Me.dium. "IE7 is the most widely-used browser worldwide, and now Me.dium users will be able to add most of their friends to Me.dium quickly and easily."

I doubt the veracity of this claim, but it is clear that this about to become a working assumption. Once that is the case then we are home and dry, as end users will come on board!

Re: IE7 most used Browser

Obviously Asia hasn't undergone AU for IE7 yet so this claim is not locally valid (yet).

Japanese site analysis:

Total visits: 10431

Browser: IE (97.58%), Safari (1.28%), Mozilla Compatible (0.65%), Firefox (0.25%), Netscape (0.13%)

IE version breakdown: 6.0 (98.24%), 5.5 (1.05%), 5.01 (0.22%), 5.23 (0.13%), 7.0 (0.04%), 4.01 (0.03%), 5.17 (0.02%), 5.22 (0.02%)

Re: IE7 most used Browser

No, but we seem to have had confirmation that it works in Israel even if you already have the US version installed. It seems reasonable to assume that outside those countries that encountered the ActiveX anomoly, IE7 is being rolled out. Much depends on how much Microsoft are still not telling us!

So basically IE6 is at 95%!

In Japan, it would seem so. But I doubt the st1ppy cr3w would believe it.

I know you cannot release any new information, but is your latest understanding that we are still on for the Third Quarter, i.e. September at the latest, or is this likely to go fuzzy on us?

Re: IE7 most used Browser

My understanding is that third quarter is still the plan. As with any such time ranges given by a large company, I assume they are talking about hitting the last possible date in that range.

If that is from Google Analytics, then don't believe it. It doesn't report IE7 users properly because of Unicode.

Yes, it was from analytics.

Analytics just doesn't report IE7 users properly. I believe it is users who access sites via Unicode rather than Punycode (something like that anyway). We reported it to Google six months but they have done nothing. There was the same issue with Truehits.net, Thailand's national stats reporting system. We reported it and they fixed it in a day. Now we can see that around 17% of our users are IE7.

So cheers to Truehits and boos to Google

My numbers show just over 14% for all versions IE7 on Thai sites. The sites may not constitute a good statistical sample suitable for extrapolating to all Thai sites. This result is based on less data (traffic) than yours I believe. However it *is* accurate, as I always backup the suspect google analytics IE reporting with the server logfiles. If most of the data from you guys' sites is actually from the games site perhaps your numbers are skewed a bit due to the younger demographic represented there??

Lessons to take away from this:

Never trust third party results without occasional verification. Also always remember that even exact results are subject to interpretation, for example accounting for Opera's user-definable user-agent string (not a big deal in Thailand - more relevant in Europe), pages failing to load fully before HTTP Requests can be made to 3rd party tracking sites, etc. And finally, always make sure you host your sites somewhere that you have access to your server logs!

Re: IE7 most used Browser

The other thread acts like IE is done. This one supports IE.

RD likes to see anything USA fall and you are a biased linux user but the fact is IE is #1 everywhere and the other browsers make up such small numbers that nobody cares.

Let me break it down into pea-sized bites:

European Countries
-------------------------------
IE: 70-80%
FF: 20-30%

Japan
-------------------------------
IE: 97%


If you want to ignore 30% of the european community, a good number of which are governmental agencies, then by my guest.

Well then you should certainly be able to understand that 20-30% of the European market does not "make up such small numbers that nobody cares", and that Europe is not Asia!
