Looks like IEs hold on China is about to be ix nixed[edit]

http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2014/05/china-bans-windows-8-government-computers   Doesn't look good for IE if the government is banning new versions of windows for the government.   Daniel.Cardenas (talk) 20:50, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

It's only the government because Windows 8 seem to store more preferences and this can't work for top secret government stuff. The rest of China doesn't use special browsers. They don't know about Internet Explorer's security gaps and just stick to the default Windows browser. --2.245.175.56 (talk) 03:36, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Map[edit]

Internet Explorer has always been the most popular browser in China. So the map is wrong with Google Chrome and I doubt that those few people in North Korea who have access to the Internet use Google Chrome. --2.245.175.56 (talk) 03:30, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Opera lover[edit]

The graph that shows the proportion of browser share over time (hosted on commons with name "Usage_share_of_web_browsers_(Source_StatCounter).svg" is flagrantly biased towards Opera. In the last few years Opera share has fallen from ~3% to ~1.4%, but because of the outrageous decision to offset "zero" from the x-axis on the graph, Opera share is contrived to look stable.

Are we expecting negative browser share in the future? If not, the graph should be fixed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.119.27.27 (talk) 14:55, 4 September 2014 (UTC)


True, this is (perhaps unintentionally) misleading. The axes can be properly rendered by adding an extra argument yaxs="i" to the plot command (without changing anything else). See the File-page of the graph for the rest of the code.
[...]
plot(browser.years, browser.ie, type="l", ylim=c(0, 70), yaxs="i",
[...]

I agree. The X axis of the graph should be at 0 and not at -3 or wherever it is right now. It looks misleading. --Maxl (talk) 20:09, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

NetApplications[edit]

How is it that the figures of NetApplications regarding the usage share of the browsers vary so widely from all other sources? Is NetApp in some way related or affiliated to Microsoft? The figures they provide seem rather unrealistic. --Maxl (talk) 20:09, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Error for Bangladesh[edit]

Most users in Bangladesh uses Chrome, not Opera. Plz fix this. 135.23.61.70 (talk) 22:04, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Page error: white on green background does not display on mobile[edit]

Green background doesn't work in mobile view, so you're left with white on white invisible cell contents. All of the green cells appear blank on mobile, as if you have no data from StatCounter about Chrome ever, for example. I knew that was impossible. Not everyone would. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.249.83.217 (talk) 08:26, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
