80% browser share for IE is a commonly thrown about number based on some
averages done by the large web stat firms.
Don't distract yourself with things like "On my site IE isn't #1"
because your friends could all be on Macs and prefer Safari or be
luddites and prefer Lynx. Who knows. Each site is different.
Enough opinion, let's throw out some stats:
Date reported, Market share, and reporting firm:
09-23-05 88.46% WebSideStory
11-02-05 85.45% OneStat
09-02-05 86.87% NetApplications
10-11-05 85.09% Janco Associates
Finally, a word from that learned scholar Homer Simpson:
*Kent: *Mr. Simpson, how do you respond to the charges that petty
vandalism such as graffiti is down eighty percent, while heavy
sack-beatings are up a shocking nine hundred percent?
*Homer: *Aw, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent.
Forfty percent of all people know that.
*Kent: *I see.
