During the current statistics trawl I started to wonder which browser technologies dominated among the visitors to the Holden Web site. November was an interesting month because both Microsoft and the Mozilla team released new products.
Here is typical information for the top ten client programs. Unlike previous statistics, Firefox users account for almost a half of the traffic to the site - usually Internet Explorer leads the pack with about 30%, but in November it was relegated to third position.
Internet Explorer 7.0 currently accounts for 2% of traffic, the first time it's appeared in the stats. The thing I found most surprising was the fact that more Firefox users were using the recently-released 2.0 version than anything else. 2% of users still use Firefox 1.0.
Rather less delightful is the fact that 20% of site traffic is spidering (though how come Yahoo has to crawl so much more aggressively than anybody else is beyond me). Perhaps the real message is that I need to put some more compelling content on the site!
