The web browser statistics have been released through August 2012. The stats are published monthly at W3CSchools.com.

Below are the web browser stats for August 2012.

2012 IE9 IE8 IE7 IE6
January 5.3% 10.5% 3.1% 1.1%
February 5.7% 10.2% 2.6% 1.0%
March 6.1% 9.4% 2.5% 0.9%
April 6.4% 8.8% 2.3% 0.7%
May 6.5% 8.8% 2.1% 0.6%
June 6.1% 8.0% 1.9% 0.6%
July 5.9% 7.7% 2.0% 0.6%
August 6.1% 7.8% 1.8% 0.5%
2012 Firefox Chrome Safari Opera
January 37.1% 35.3% 4.3% 2.4%
February 36.6% 36.3% 4.5% 2.3%
March 36.3% 37.3% 4.4% 2.3%
April 35.8% 38.3% 4.5% 2.3%
May 35.2% 39.3% 4.3% 2.2%
June 34.4% 41.7% 4.1% 2.2%
July 33.7% 42.9% 3.9% 2.1%
August 32.8% 43.7% 4.0% 2.2%

This past month, it looks like browser users are switching things up a little. Internet Explorer users are upgrading to IE9 and IE8 as both of those percentages have increased slightly while respectively, the numbers for IE7 and IE6 are down. This is basically the opposite of what happened last month.

Firefox users are declining slightly quicker than they have been all year, dropping .9% in one month. Opera has recovered the .1% it lost last month, and likewise, Safari is back up by .1% as well. Chrome is still rising steadily and is clearly the most popular browser.

Sooner or later someone is going to ask you a question that might make you feel uncomfortable and at the very least . . . awkward!
Why own that “awkward” when you can mark that envelope “return to sender”
The next time someone asks you a question that makes you feel a tad uncomfortable, send it back […]

The first type is the Well Poisoner. The Well Poisoner discourages you, stomps on your creativity and tells you what you can’t do! When I lost everything I had, I took on […]
