Looking at GA, I was surprised to see that 27% of my users are listed as java support = no.

Most numbers i have seen indicate that about 2% of web traffic has javascript turned off, so this number seemed high to me. But wait, GA can't even track visitors with js disabled because it needs js to work, right? So these must be user's that don't support java applets? Like maybe they don't have any or the latest java plugin installed?

What do you all show for java support %?

can we bump this up to the top please?


What's the difference between Java Support Y vs Java Support N as defined in Google Analytics?

For for my site, I see Java Support Y vs Java Support N at almost 50:50 - but the N users at 1/3 the rate of the Y users.

Because we have quite a bit of traffic, this is a HUGE differential.

How do I get to the bottom of this?
