    HUZZAH!

    Good to see a nice climb in chrome users aswell. Still needs a bit of functionality love as far as web design & development is concerned, but it is a bloody good browser.

    The only thing I wish I could do with chrome easier is turn JS off (tell me if there's an easier way that changing the target)... but otherwise it is a super browser :D

    TBH I can't wait for IE9.
    It has support for all the selectors, multiple background images on 1 element, text shadow, border radius, new JS engine new modern look etc... etc... as far as I'm aware anyway.

    But I should be switching from Safari to IE9 which should be out this side of Xmas I reckon, especially as Microsoft have got there act together as well and given us a development tool to see what our sites look like in all the browsers, and a web developers debug tool as well.

    Hay looks like techcrunch needs to get their figures right. Go to statcounter, where they got the results from, click the stat that says bar and then hover over the results.

    IE 55.83% share.

    However Chrome 6.6% look at the line graph and that's over 10% so not sure which graph they reckon is right but both are different.

    Mmm....I wonder what the best way to tell the stats for indidudual browser stats are, IE: IE6,7 and 8, FF, Saf, Op and Chro.

    Hitwise?

    I can't find it if it is?
    Any other ideas peeps?

    what about these
    Browser Statistics
    W3Counter - Global Web Stats

    And Jaz don't forget how these stats are gathered, most are gathered by browsers hitting a set group of websites or similar so it's entirely possible the results will be skewed if the sites are 'business' or 'home' orientated etc

    I reckon the second one you gave is probably the best for the browser versions as W3 is going to be biased to other versions other than IE, but yeah I know it sucks.

    It's a shame that Google doesn't publish one from their analytics's as google analytics's is now reckoned to be in over 1/3 of sites on the net, now that would be pretty accurate if it wasn't tampered with.
