New Zealand Browser Stats 2011

Looks like Internet Explorer is not as popular as it once was in New Zealand, according to Statcounter Global Statistics. While holding its number 1 spot it has dropped below 40% of browser usage.  Google's Chrome browser has overtaken Firefox to becomes NZ's number 2 browser.

What does this mean for you?
If you are not already using Chrome it means, after you have done website updates, you need to look at your website in

  • Chrome
  • Internet Explorer
  • Firefox
because sometimes they will display your updates differently/unexpectedly.

Stats for mobile devices show the iPhone browser useage far exceeds any of the other mobile browsers.
