This question comes up every now and then and there is a debate on
market share, ...etc. Some will point to w3schools, others to other sites.
The fact is: it all depends on the audience of a given site. It varies widely
depending on that:
For what's its worth, here are my April statistics for browsers (all browsers
with less than 1% share are ignored)
Quasi Techie site
MS Internet Explorer 64 % (61% is MS IE 6.0)
Firefox 22.4 %
Unknown 5.7 %
Safari 3 %
Mozilla 1.5 %
Opera 1.3 %
Non techie niche site (in line with Steven's general web stats).
MS Internet Explorer 82.2 % (79% is MS IE 6.0)
Firefox 10.6 %
Unknown 2.5 %
Safari 1.4 %
Mozilla 1 %
Just look at the MS IE vs FF. 64:22 in one case, and 82:10 in the other.
MS IE is mostly 6.0, so 5.x has very little market share.
