I was really bored yesterday so I made this site. Ywww.browserfacts.net…
Im going to have an IE conditional comment on my sites with a link to this with a note to read “The problems with IE”.
I hope it can be useful to some of you too.
Please inform me if I have any incorrect statements in the site… I got the information off Wikipedia!

There’s also some poor coding practicesMarch 21, 2011 at 6:25 pm #54737
I think it’s important to note that a lot of the statistics for browser usage appear to come from w3schools.com. They derive those statistics from their own user base, so while it’s an accurate representation of their own viewers, it really only serves as a benchmark for the rest of us!
Another benchmark would be Wikimedia, which sees over 40% of it’s users using IE as of January 2011: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Browser_usage_on_wikimedia_pie_chart.png
I’m not sure there are any very broad surveys out there that would give a very accurate number in this regard, though I would love to see one! Whatever the case, it’s worth nothing that a site built primarily for developers will most likely yield higher percentages of viewers using browsers like Fx, Chrome, Opera, etc.March 21, 2011 at 6:30 pm #54738March 21, 2011 at 6:36 pm #54726
Sure, use the th tag for table headings, rather than styling a td to look different.
Inline styling everywhere!
Also, lack of alt tags on images!!! :-)March 21, 2011 at 6:43 pm #54720
Michael: here is where the stats are derived from http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/2010-12/SquidReportClients.htm
Neither the wikimedia stats, or the w3schools stats would provide a very reliable representation of all internet users. It would be expected that the wikimedia stats to be more consistent with the general population though considering that w3schools targets developers and designers (who are often more educated about browser choice).March 21, 2011 at 6:44 pm #54721
Thanks :) But its HTML 5 so theres no need for alt tagsMarch 21, 2011 at 6:53 pm #54711
Actually, I think Mark is right in saying alt tags would be good to have :) http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/embedded-content-1.html#altMarch 21, 2011 at 6:55 pm #54702
Cool thanks :)March 21, 2011 at 6:56 pm #54703
That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard any web developer say EVER
Alt tags are for accessibility, not just because it’ll be valid/invalid markupMarch 21, 2011 at 7:15 pm #54704March 21, 2011 at 7:17 pm #54705
Whats wrong with Inline styling ? :SMarch 21, 2011 at 7:24 pm #54706seeingsoundMember
“Not as popular as the competition” is not a weakness. Weakness by definition has to be a flaw or weak point. Popularity is neither of those.
There are so many mistakes on your site that it’s sad. Do your research and try againMarch 21, 2011 at 7:30 pm #54672
