    I realy want to know as I'm curious as to what this demographic is using, for one, plus I also think the "official" statistics are doctored to show higher IE prevalence than there realy is. For example, lets say 30% of computer users are using eighter Mac OS
    or Linux, then a claim that more than 90% of computer users are using IE doesn't seem right to me.

    Opera, it's faster, easier, and uses less ram

    Other are just spider bots (google, etc) and download managers (download accelerator, flashget, etc).

    I'd like to see gbatemp.net's stats though.

    GBAtemp is probably not a good place to get an accurate idea of what browser the average computer user uses. Most of the people here are gamers and/or pirates, which means that they will have at least some idea of how to download and use a file.

    The majority of IE users (and PC users in general) can't use any file that isn't already on their desktop or in My Documents, unless windows opens the file for them automatically when they put a disc in the CD drive. These people do not download and install Firefox, or Opera, or some other alternative browser.

    Firefox 2 most of the time.. Safari as an alternative when sites break with Firefox. IE is dead to me, and the Mac userbase at large I suspect.

    I have Opera and FF open, newest versions of both, displaying the same page. Firefox is using 42k of ram, Opera is using 21k.

    firefox, and when im having issues with firefox i use opera. the only reason i dont use opera all the time is an issue with vBulletin boards pm's not displaying right or at all some times, beyond that i prefer opera.

    firefox 2.x (did have alphas of 3 at one point) + a couple of choice extensions: adblock plus, fireftp. keepvid.com kills the need for videodownloader extension.

    I.E. is only used for the 2 sites that hate I.E.but have downloads on (chinese version of 4shared/rapidshare), the rest of the time if if it "I.E. only then the site can go unviewed.

    3 things though:
    a lot of people change the browser ID as a lot of the time that is all an I.E. only site requires.
    I doubt here would be a very random selection or even a good one for the reason above and Destructobots reasoning.
    More people than you might think use firefox/opera: of the 90 odd individual PCs I have restored over the last few years they have all had an alternative on, this then caused a massive knockon effect for everyone else so when I get calls from friend of friend I find they have a firefox (albeit a very much intweaked one) as well.


    All this being said I have been meaning to check out Iceweasel for no real reason.

    I'm running Firefox 2 off an ubuntu livedisc right now, and once I get my linux reinstalled, I'll probly still be using it.
