I was getting tired of bias statistics so i ran my on using easy counter on a social site.
Here are the results as of 1000 unique hits.
Start date 2/2/2009 5:17 PM
End date 2/14/2009 5:26 PM

ADMIN EDIT: the stats were moved to http://codefisher.org/forum/az-browser-stats.html for easy readability.

Thought you might be interested to see the results.

I don't think you got around the problem of bias, your stats look very unlikly. The most heaverly quoted results are those by Net Applications

Also of interest are the OS stats they give

http://marketshare.hitslink.com/os-market-share.aspx?qprid=9

On codefisher.org Firefox is around 80% followed by a few small amounts from IE, various feed readers etc.

Which results surprise you? Net Applications or your own?

It very much depends on your audience. Slightly more nerdy like for example on w3schools and you do get figures like %45 for Firefox http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp how ever if you go look at say a woman's clothes site, IE being around %75 and Firefox down at %12 is very reasonable.

Guess I have been following it longer then you and got used to the idea of Firefox being around that mark. It has been rising slow and steady and I doubt it will stop till it dominates. It got an army of nerds on side, and they hold a great influence over what goes on other peoples computers.

I have looked at the statistics on w3schools.com
the growth rate of Firefox
I first started using firefox when my IE6 quit opening and a command line did not work half the time and hating the layout of IE7 I used firefox for 10 minutes and loved it. So many customization options, the addon selection and you can actually get in it to fix (or try to) any issues you may have (minor theme adjustments for example) (like userchrom.css)

I started using it back in version 1.0.3 I think, or some version around them. I had heard it was a better browser, more secure and faster, so I thought I would give it a try. The only down side was if I had to use IE on another computer I found it a pain.
