Something weird

What is going on here? I’m looking at my statistics, and find that for April Opera is represented by 16.2% of the browsers visiting my site. Those who have read my previous numbers see that there were quite a growth in Opera usage the first four months after I changed host, but it didn’t continue to grow like that. It stopped at 7-8%, with a dip down to 5.6% in March.

That Opera 8 was released in April could of course be an explaination – but these numbers were obvious early on, long before the release, so the explaination must be somewhere else. It will be interesting to see how May will turn out.

To continue with the numbers for the browsers I presented in January:

January February March April>
Internet Explorer 70.7% 65.0% 70.2% 63.3%
Opera 7.0% 8.2% 5.6% 16.2%
Firefox 9.6% 9.4% 10.0% 10.5%
Mozilla 2.3% 3.9% 3.3% 1.8%
Safari 2.2% 1.6% 2.1% 1.4%
Netscape 1.4% 1.2% 1.1% 0.9%
Konqueror 0.1% 0.1% 0.1% 0.2%

I’ll be crossing my fingers and hope that Opera won’t dip down again – at least not by much.After all, it is a terrific browser. 😉

I have too many interests for my own good, in that I don't manage to make time for them all. A bit artistic, which can be seen to a degree.
