Maciek, it is pointless to pick an arbitrary website and see their stats. 
As the page you linked to notes:

W3Schools is a website for people with an interest for web technologies. 
These people are more interested in using alternative browsers than the 
average user. The average user tends to use Internet Explorer, since it 
comes preinstalled with Windows. Most do not seek out other browsers.

These facts indicate that the browser figures below are not 100% 
realistic. Other web sites have statistics showing that Internet Explorer 
is used by at least 80% of the users.
