Makers use Firefox

Make Pt0957
I do reports each month about how the MAKE site is doing in terms of traffic and all sorts of metrics, I don’t think I’ve ever posted any of the interesting tidbits so I’m going to start doing that… here’s one, most of you visiting the site are using Firefox (this is for the month of August vs July).

  1. If the “FireSomething” plugin ever gets updated to be compatible with FF3, you may get some weird stats listings from me.
    Firesomething changes the reported browser name to be a combination of words in a database. The default lists are (a) various words, and (b) animals. It renames the browser things like: Atomiczebra, or Captainferret, etc.

  2. Fairly similar with http://erroraccessdenied.com for August ’08 …
