Let's see what the TGTAP community use in the way of browsers. Vote for the one you PREFER to use, even if you can't use them at school/work or whatever. If you pick "other", please reply saying which one you use. If I have missed an important one, let me know.

Perhaps Chris could provide the browser stats for TGTAP visitors?

My vote is for Firefox, a great simple browser that gets the job done properly, and has loads of really decent extensions to extend the functionality. What more could you ask for?

Same as Chris. And Firefox even has a thread on these forums. So Firefox is the best.

Well, here's a load of screen captures from my Google Analytics account, they show basically any statistics you could want to see. The screens below show browser stats, as well as some other interesting (maybe) stats.

Browser Versions
Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
The second screen is a breakdown of which versions of IE people are using, the third is a breakdown of which versions of Firefox people are using. Expect both IE7 and FF2.0 to rise drastically over the next month.
The first screen meanwhile shows IE still has an overwhelming share. Firefox is doing incredibly well though and now over a quarter of visitors to this site are using it.

OS - Browser Combo
Posted Image
This screen shows you which combination of browser and operating system are the most popular.

Operating Systems
Posted Image Posted Image
The first image shows us that the vast majority are using Windows, Mac's are growing slowly though. As for every other OS they are a minority. The second screen shows which version of Windows are the most used.

Connection Speeds
Posted Image
Quite hard for Google to measure these accurately, hence a lot of Unknowns. Majority are using Cable or DSL though which is good. A lucky few (probably at work) have been using a corporate connection to access the site. Just over 11% still using dialup. I'd like to see this drop below 10 soon.

Screen Resolutions

Pretty self explanatory.

These stats are for visits to thegtaplace.com in the month of October so far (up until today, the 28th)

I'm using the FF1.5.x atm. But I'll upgrade to 2.0 in a few days.

Nice stats btw.

Out of that 11% probably some was mine, now I am glad I moved to DSL a couple of months ago.

Oh and about browsers I started using opera after FF 1.5 crashed once in a while, now with FF2.0 I dont have that problem, good bye opera and welcome back firefox, it is just my favorite browser.

My favourite is FireFox. I prefer it because it's so easy to use. The tabs feature is also very good.

Bump.


I'm about the only one prefering IE 7. I tried FireFox but didn't really like it. But IE 7 does take aobut 4 times longer to start when you just started you computer than firefox.

Yeah I know a lot of people that have tried Firefox for like 2 minutes and decided they didn't like it. I've had to force many of my friends and acquaintances to use it for a few days before they start to like it.

Its faster, more secure, lightweight (doesnt have everything built in) but is immensely expandable (can add everything to it if you want). Why go for anything else?

I'm using Firefox 2.0. Probably the only reason I use it is my Internet Explorer 6.0 generated errors and I could barely use it but Firefox is still better.

I had firefox for 2 weeks but I really didn't like it. I don't understand what's that great about it.
