Really interesting browser stat trends from PCPro.

Four Year's of User Browser Stats Shows Significant Shifts [pcpro.co.uk]
What browser do you currently use? Four years ago, more than half of our site visitors were using Internet Explorer, but today that figure is less than a quarter.

The rise and fall of various browsers is well documented, but it's always interesting to analyse the market from a particular point of view - say, that of a UK-based technology website. Luckily, we have the stats to do just that.

The rise of Chrome is the obvious standout, but there's more to the market changes than Google's browser.

Right now, the top three browsers are all pretty even among PC Pro visitors - at the last count there was less than 3% between them. Firefox and Internet Explorer have snaked around one another as they both decline, and Chrome finally edged ahead of them in our stats in April this year.

PC Pro would have a techie audience, so not representative of most other types of business.

At a large bank (millions of visits per month), I see currently:

IE = 55%
FF = 14.6%
Chrome = 12.8%
Safari = 10.4%
Opera = 0.1%
rest are less than 0.1%

The top two individual browsers are IE9 and IE8, followed by FF14 and Chrome 21.

IE 6 is at 2.5% (most of our staff still have it on their machines for legacy app reasons, as do some other corporates.)
