Morgan Strong's blog | Created 5 years ago

When I was going through my routine analysis of our Google Analytics account, I thought "wouldn't it be interesting to compare the last three years of stats of browser type and mobile device usage". After all, we've just made our website responsive, and worked on quite a lot progressive of enhancements to support HTML5 and CSS3, so we should demonstrate why these changes and innovations are important.

So here are some preliminary results:

Browser Type

  Aug-12 Aug-11 Aug-10
Internet Explorer 9+ 17.37% 9.03% N/A
Internet Explorer 8 16.60% 30.94% 34.51%
Internet Explorer 6,7 4.19% 12.20% 25.35%
IE Total 38.15% 52.17% 60.03%
Safari 23.31% 16.13% 12.65%
Firefox 16.64% 18.98% 20.34%
Chrome 16.11% 10.48% 5.72%
Andriod 2.94% 0.89% N/A
Opera 0.40% 0.31% 0.44%

In the next part of the blog I will go into some depth about the type of mobile used and the rise of tablets devices.
