Has anyone seen any studies that determine how many people print web pages using their browser (control-p, file>print, etc.) versus the print solution offered by the website itself (printer friendly-version, etc.).

My instincts tell me that most people use their browser to print, ignoring other devises websites have come up with like printer-friendly versions, etc. Unfortunately, I'm not sure there is a way to track how many people print from their browser.

Has anyone seen any data or articles on this topic?

If you use a print CSS you could track the number of HTTP requests for the print CSS file.
