Friday, June 16th, 2006>p> While not specifically Ajax-related, I definitely think that this new post on Jeff Attwood’s blog shares some very valuable information about the environment we all develop in – web browsers – and the usage trend he’s seeing on his site.
To get an idea of what web developers are using — as compared to typical web users — take a look at the comprehensive w3schools browser statistics, picking up from mid-2004 when the Google statistics end.
Quite a difference from the other browser market share statistics; IE 6.0 is dominant, but not overwhelmingly dominant to the tune of 95% market share at its peak in late 2004. It’s also interesting that despite being five years old and generally reviled by most serious web developers, IE 6 usage has only dipped ten percent from its historical peak on w3schools.
