Just a heads up to the 12% of LA Observed visitors who still drop in using Internet Explorer version 6 or earlier. The bane of web designers everywhere may soon be dropped by YouTube as a supported browser. Good reminder to get the heck off IE6 as soon as you can.
By the numbers: Looking at our stats for June (our most-visited month of 2009, incidentally), 48% of LAO readers used some version of Internet Explorer. About 28% browsed with Firefox, 12% came in on Safari, and the rest were a smattering of other browsers and RSS readers. Three years ago, the share on some version of IE was 61%, with version 6 by far the predominant browser.
