When it comes to browser data, I don't really have the time to assume it's
true only to find out after my site is done that they were wrong about IE5.5
supporting Javascript. And I don't own all of the various browsers/platforms
to test it for myself. So I ask. I've asked similar questions on other
lists, like what percentage of people still use NN4.* and received a wide
variety of answers. If I looked online, I'd probably get the same references
but without the valuable opinions and counterpoints of those who have
already found the problems with certain sites' figures on browser use.

I was looking for info on all popular browsers (i.e. those you mention) on
both platforms. The chart that was on the Webmonkey page he referenced
listed the popular browsers but only on Windows. I later found links on that
same page to Mac and Linux charts as well.
