Which web browsers do journalists favor?
After I started playing with Internet Explorer 9 tonight — and knowing that most developers, including Microsoft, want to wean the world from IE6 as soon as possible — I grew curious about the browsers favored by my site’s visitors. A quick dig into Google Analytics gave me the data for the last few months, and the Google Charts API let me build a quick pie:
I can’t know for sure, but I suspect that most people who read my site are journalists or developers. Most traffic comes from links I post on Twitter or via search keywords that tend toward journalism, data, math and, lately, the Census.
Oh, and the percent using IE6? Less than 0.4%.
