I'd say you shouldn't guess. You shouldn't rely on what your
pet marketing drones tell you. You shouldn't rely on browser
stats from the general population that may not match your case.
Rely on your server logs. One of my web pages still has about
10% NS4 hits, so I respect that choice by my user base.
