    What about Opera masking/identifying as Firefor/IExplorer? Does this feature affect results?

    Yes, I think this could affect browser market share.

    Most of these changes (0.01%!) are, I would imagine, far below the threshold of statistical error for these kind of stats. I think the only conclusion that can be drawn is that Opera and Netscape are holding steady, and FF and Safari may have made a tiny increase.

    Well, of course, many of OPERA users use masking while browsing, so OPERA’s results are quite inaccurate
