Past polls update...

Rob, it would be interesting to see what your log says. I'd love to compare what people SAY they're using versus what they're ACTUALLY using...

That could lead to inaccuracy as well as when many people are at work they may be forced to use an XP machine, or a differently configured (for who knows what reasons) Mac.

And I know my web stats software, AWStats, doesn't list the OS and the browser version together. Obviously this is not an issue for IE, but Firefox versions are the same on both platforms so the results would be misleading.

Maybe there is a way to tweak AWStats to put those together, I haven't really investigated it, however if the stats software doesn't do that Rob would have to go through the logs by hand, no fun!

Even more confusing are the variety of browsers out there, and the RSS readers which enter the fray (as they report as a browser). The actual stats for the site show NetNews Reader and AppleSyndication (I'm guessing that's Tiger's Safari) at the top of the list :).
