Running some statistical analysis on the Apache2 logs from the past year (2009) I noticed something frightening:

Number 6 was the most used version of Internet Explorer during the whole year. 18.7 % of all requests originated from IE6 while IE7 was at 13.8 % and IE8 reached 6.1 %.

The good news is that only 40.2 % of the traffic was caused by Internet Explorer browsers. The various versions of Firefox accumulated 36.6 % with version 3.0.10 being the most commonly used (4.9 %).

Hopefully there will be one day soon when Microsoft stops support for IE6. I really dare to hope so.

The dataset contained almost 500.000 records (hits) and analysis was carried out with AWStats.
