Still the One

A lot of people complain about it, but we still use it-- a lot.

I do check the blog stats page from time to time.  Hits and page views are up, thank you very much.

One of the thing that fascinates me is the browers you use to get here.  58 per cent of you use Microsoft's Internet Explorer.  Firefox comes in a distant second, with 22 per cent.  Apple's Safari has 10 per cent of the market.  Google's Chrome closely follows, with 8 per cent.  The Chrome thing surprises me.  I know people who love it, and who swear by it.  Yet, it has a small share of the market.

Even though it went away a long time ago, there are still a few people using Netscape.  It logs in at less than one per cent.

You have to stand in awe of all Microsoft has accomplished.  Even though its products have some flaws, it's the "go to" gold standard of the internet.
