    Wow. A minority of your site visitors use IE?

    That's pretty damn impressive. It wasn't that long ago that all the numbers I saw hovered around the >80% range for IE users. At least among Windows machines.

    Over 40% of RM users use Firefox.

    Firefox 3 is impressive. I notice that RM loads significantly faster with it.

    Konqueror is a browser that comes with a lot of Linux distributions.

    Mozilla is just another browser. It is created by the same company as Firefox. Some call it a predecessor to Firefox, others believe that it is better than Firefox.

    FF3 loads pages slightly faster than FF2 loaded them with the FasterFox extension turned on and set to the maximum.

    Pretty impressive.
