Well I belive as well we should't bother with ie 5 for mac, but it would be
nice to have the web browser usage from arbitrary source like w3c. Goba my
mistake I was sure w3schools is a part of w3c but it's not so we shouldn't
take it into account. On the other hand certain target group is using
certain browsers.

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.
