I agree with this theory, sounds OK.

I can only offer the results of my own browser detect on some Dutch sites, 
showing that about three months ago IE5 passed NN4 as largest Mac-based 
browser. Mac percentages (of total browser use) of the last three months:

IE5 2.2%
NN4 1.9%
IE4 0.4%
NN6 0.1%
Oth 0.2%

Mac total 4.8%
