I've just posted the State of Browsers Geekzone report March 2014 in my blog. Have a look for some comparisons with previous years...

We only have IE at my work (can't remember which version). At home, I prefer to use Chrome for everything.

freitasm [blog]: It seems businesses are slowly moving away from Internet Explorer, with Chrome now showing 46% adoption, up from 39% last year.

Interesting comment there. My feeling is many organisations no longer strictly mandate a browser as they once did. Now they may still mandate officially but show more tolerance for users selecting their own from a list of org approved browser install packages, and restricting to a single known browser is longer seen as a security/management advantage in many organisations.

For kicks I looked it up though, and PC world agrees with you :)

What were the numbers on those that connected to the site using the mobile version versus the standard desktop version.

It was miles better than Chrome when it was still the Presto engine now that it's just a Chrome clone it's not so great anymore although one really great feature (extension) you can use is called User Agent Switcher which allows access to the Chrome extensions page and you can then install and use any Chrome extension you like even when the browser switches back to Opera which is pretty cool as you longer have to wait for devs to port their extensions to Opera laughing

And I'm one of the small handful on Opera 21.0.1432.57

freitasm: Nope, sorry. Just a handful of visitors really.



 

I'm one .  One Opera 12.17 with Firefox 30  as my second choice.

kyhwana2: ! 12% of geekzone users are still on XP!?

I'm amazed by the NZ Windows distribution - 15% Win 8.1 seems remarkably high - 12% XP seems low.
Geekzoners are obviously early adopters.
