Mac Browser Usage Share from my little site
Very easy with the new Google Analytics

Every now and then I see a thread asking about browser usage share specifically for Macs. The new version of Google Analytics made grabbing that data really easy, so here they are.

These stats are for my fairly low volume site, your mileage may vary. Most of the traffic is organic first time visits, the majority from Google.

Share of the Macintosh Market for one particular tiny little website:
65.37% Safari / Macintosh
28.08% Firefox / Macintosh
1.77% Internet Explorer / Macintosh
1.51% Camino / Macintosh
1.51% Mozilla / Macintosh
1.33% Netscape / Macintosh
0.44% Opera / Macintosh

Rats, when will MSIE for Mac just go away and never come back?

Thats interesting - what topic does the site cover? (is it a mac-centric kind of site?)

what topic does the site cover?

It's a very general interest site, slanted towards women. Not computer related at all.

Have you configured Google Analytics to filter out your own internal traffic [google.com]? I've found that a web developer can cause a significant effect on stats -- worse if you have employees.

Good point Greg, and I would add that, in this Web 2.0 age, if your site has a handful of everyday visitors, you might want to filter them as well.

BTW, yes, my stats are filtered.
