Re: Is IE7 for IDNs here yet? Please share stats. Thks.

OK. I knuckled down and pulled out some better stats. These are uniques now, so the ratios are more accurate.

France:
Week # IE6 IE7 FF (%ages)
5-2007 48 41 11
4-2007 49 39 12
3-2007 49 39 12
2-2007 52 37 12
1-2007 51 38 11
52-2006 53 37 10
51-2006 58 32 11
50-2006 64 26 10
49-2006 77 12 11
48-2006 85 5 10
47-2006 87 2 10
46-2006 87 2 11
45-2006 88 2 10
44-2006 89 1 10

If someone wants to make a purdy graph, go ahead.

Now, looking at one of my French domains that gets regular type-in traffic, it's traffic has gone up by 130% over that time.

Not the 400% increase you would expect if the original traffic was just from Firefox users.

This suggests one of 2 things to me:

1. A not insignificant number of IE6 users had the IDN plugin installed, so were making it to the site prior to the release of IE7.

and/or

2. The special version of IE7 released by Wannadoo/Orange does NOT append .com to the end of keywords typed into the address bar, so the traffic increase is only IE7 AU upgrades.
