Browser market share

You can never be too sure how accurate these figures are, but I came across some interesting statistics while researching another article:

Internet Explorer73.01%
... and the rest1.65%

With over 25% of the web using Firefox and Safari, the browser wars are definitely back on. As a web developer, you certainly can’t ignore these browsers now. Not even for intranet development, in my opinion.

The use of alternative browsers is only going to increase, I believe, with increasing market share of Safari in the mobile market, and release of Firefox 3.0 increasing its adoption in the desktop market.
