    Oh dear.

    How many times are people going to have to tell you that Net Applications are a bunch of liars? Why are you mindlessly repeating their dishonest drivel?

  2. alternatives?

    Thats the point! But @sigh is right. Pathetic…

  3. sigh says:

    There are no alternatives. All browser stats are demonstraby false and not representative at all. Net Applications is just particularly bad, or has had particularly bad luck because they were busted red-handed manipulating their numbers. The others haven’t been caught directly yet, although claiming that Chrome has a higher market share than Opera with fewer users(*) is absurd and proves that something is wrong.

    *) Google reported 10 million Chrome users and Opera 30. With 1/3 of the # of users, several statistics claimed that Chrome had a higher market share than Opera!

    Too bad for opera man. Why don’t they fkin advertise. Most people don’t know that Opera even exists!! Google chrome just came out and they’re already >1% of market. That’s because of Google’s popularity. I hate to say it, but market share’s just a popularity contest.
