    I think the next milestone is 30% as I remember that was said by Mozilla.

    Net Applications?


    Those guys EDIT THEIR STATS to make them look like they want them to look. According to them, Opera had 5-6% a year ago or so. But suddenly they changed it and edited the stats manually to move Opera down to 0.something% instead.

    People need to stop listening to the liars at Net Applications

    Well, most people and websites rely on them. You’d think they’re reliable…

  4. Swenson says:

    But it is true that they edited their stats, also their historical figures, in a major way without leaving any kind of notice what happened.

    Not really a scientific approach to statistics.

    Lots of people trusted GWB too, was that a reason to trust him?

    state your stats site then

  6. wut says:

    Who is “nobody” talking to?

  7. nobody says:

    to you, the man that claims net applications are not reliable. state ‘reliable’ stats then

  8. Swenson says:

    Since when did it become obligatory to have a better alternative every time you criticize something?

    The point is that net applications statistics are published everywhere on the net, without any questioning. It just seems like everyone trust them “because they are the most relied on source”.

    But noone knows how they calculate their stats. Changing historical figures without saying beep makes them look like they just make the numbers up.

    That’s the point. No stats are reliable. NO ONE has a representative sample. All of these claimed global browser stats are STATISTICALLY USELESS.

    Statistics 101, people.
