DV Hardware browser and OS statistics

Posted on Sunday, February 25 2007 @ 20:29:54 CET by


There's not much news on Sundays so I thought it might be interesting to publish some specifics on the browsers and operating systems you use to visit this website.

For this article I'm going to compare the stats from Google Analytics from January 2006 with those from January 2007.

DV Hardware - Jan 2006 browser stats
  • Internet Explorer - 61.79%
  • Firefox - 30.78%
  • Opera - 4.25%
  • Safari - 1.50%
  • Others - 1.68%

    DV Hardware - Jan 2007 browser stats
  • Internet Explorer - 55.99%
  • Firefox - 37.64%
  • Opera - 3.64%
  • Safari - 1.50%
  • Others - 1.23%

    The most used browser to visit DV Hardware is still Internet Explorer. In 2006 more than 98% used Internet Explorer 6, in the first month of this year this has dropped to 62.27% - 37.13% already used the new Internet Explorer 7. The Firefox folks mostly used version 2.0.0.1 (64.35%) in January 2007 but a significant 24.48% stick with version 1.5.0.9.

    Now lets take a look at the operating systems our visitors used:

    DV Hardware - Jan 2006 operating system stats
  • Windows - 96.54%
  • Mac - 2.10%
  • Linux - 1.15%
  • Others - 0.21%

    DV Hardware - Jan 2007 operating system stats
  • Windows - 95.21%
  • Mac - 2.80%
  • Linux - 1.78%
  • Others - 0.21%

    In 2007 Windows XP was the most popular Windows OS for our visitors, with a marketshare of 92.76% of the Windows market. 3.36% of the Windows users used Windows 2000, 1.54% Windows Vista, 1.14% Windows 98, 1.05% Windows Server 2003 and some still use ME, NT or 95.

    58.90% of the Mac users were using a PPC system while 41.08% already used one of those Intel-based Macs. For Linux there statistics aren't detailed enough, 99.82% used an "unknown version".

    Conclusion
    Since last year Internet Explorer lost about 6% marketshare to its competitors, while Firefox almost gained 7%. Despite the strong growth of the amount of Mac visitors, Safari's marketshare remained stable. Opera on the other hand experienced a fairly big hit from 4.25% to only 3.64%.

    In the OS market Microsoft Windows lost marketshare to Apple's Mac OS and various Linux distributions. Apple gained 33.33% from 2.10% to 2.80% and Linux usage soared 54.78% from 1.15% to 1.78%.

    Preliminarily data from the February stats shows Windows Vista is gaining popularity. In January 2007 (before the official launch) only 1.46% of our visitors used it, this month it's already 4.12%.

    Based on the statistics, the average DVH reader uses either IE6, Firefox 2.0.0.1 or IE7 on a Windows XP system.
