Staggeringly Old Browsers and Operating Systems still in Use!

I’ve twiddled the settings on my Wassup Widget to show huge lists of all the OSs & Web Browsers hitting my poor little website.  They show in the first sidebar to the right.

Granted that the list has selective filtering applied because of the content and how the various search engines direct people here, but it’s still astonishing that people are not only still using IE5 of various flavours but also IE3 and worse!

To be frank I don’t even know how the website appears in those browsers – in fact, I don’t test it in IE of any shade any more….  I think that anyone who has trouble viewing with IE deserves all they get when there are so many better alternatives.  This applies to both rendering quality and security.

Also of interest is the fact that people are still web-browsing using win95 & winNT!

At least I now have good evidence for a reason for the rapid spread of malware of all types across the web…

(I’ll whip the list down in size in a while after I’ve got bored with it.  It’s a live analysis of the logs hitting my site for the last few months)
