Australia 4.71%

Singapore 1.06%
India 0.98%

What browser and OS are people using?

I like geeky stats like that.

The board has certainly been a big help to me since my trip from the darkside last November so thanks a lot for your efforts :)

I know that Mac-Forums has a decent sized international membership...but if I was asked to guess...I would not have guessed that almost 50% of the site visits were from international members!:)

The next question is...who's getting rich $$$ with those great stats!;)

Thanks for sharing Schweb!!

p.s. Yes I understand that it does cost a bunch of bucks to keep Mac-Forums up & running...so hopefully the balance sheet is at least breaking even!:):)

This shows 2 things.

1. That a sizeable number of Non-Apple users (IE, Android, Blackberry) surf these forums. For whatever reason who knows. But a lot of those people would are potential switchers.

2. 4.71% from me (oh I mean all Australians whoops :) ) Is a lot. I thought it'd be less.

I was really surprised of the iPad visits ... 38 odd thousand is quite a few considering the amount of time they have been available ..

Interesting though :)

AT&T is quite nice where I live.

I'm surprised that some people visit the forum from their iPods and their iPads :O. I mean for the iPhone, they have internet everywhere with the 3G, but iPod doesn't, so they have to get wifi to connect. I thought they would be much less users but surprisingly no 0.o

I started on this site with a Windows computer, and then had three Mac computers I used to visit this site. I've learned that this site has a mobile/iPhone version as well (albeit not as well featured, but it doesn't matter to me).
