None of your sites delivers Britney Spears lyrics, so it doesn't give a full
picture. I hope you accept the fact that places on the Web which to us are
dark alleys exist nonetheless.

As for my site, 63% of its visitors (so far this month) use Windows. On
another site that I created and collaborate on, which revolves about humour
and opinions (more of the Average Joe's material), the reality is entirely

There are at least 3 large bodies that monitor traffic for reports that they
publish. Figures like 40,000 sample sites crop into my mind out of nowhere
(no references, I'm afraid), so it's safer to go by what they say. Their
primary aim is to gather browser statistics and I don't believe they have
bias in favour of MSIE.
