First, I’d like to wish everyone a happy new year on behalf of the entire LQ team. 2010 has been another great year for LQ and we have quite a bit of exciting developments in store for 2011, including a major code update. I’ve posted to this blog far less frequently in 2010 than I’d have liked to, and I’m going to work to change that this year (I do post to twitter fairly often, for those interested).
As has become tradition, here are the Browser and OS Statistics for the main LQ site for all of 2010 (2009 stats for comparison).
Firefox ... 57.11%
Chrome ... 16.44%
Internet Explorer ... 16.40%
Safari ... 3.43%
Opera ... 3.25%
Mozilla ... 2.21%
Konqueror ... .47%
Firefox is now on a multi-year slide while Chrome has passed IE to move into the number two position.
Safari made some significant gains while Konqueror use was cut in half.
Windows ... 51.71%
Linux ... 41.33%
Macintosh ... 5.78%
iPhone ... .21%
Android ... .15%
Windows use is slightly down this year, while both Linux and OS X use are slightly up.
As expected both iPhone and Android are up significantly. While Android saw more significant gains, it’s still a bit behind the iPhone.
The iPad, for reference, is at ... .06%
I’d also like to take this time to thank each and every LQ member. You are what make the site great.
Apparently, Linux is picking up speed and gaining on the Windows-dominated PC market.
2011 looks good for Linux !!
