Web analytics research firm OneStat.com revealed this week global usage statistics for leading Web browsers. Apple Computer saw the global usage share of its Safari browser more than double since February, according to the report.
OneStat.com indicated that Safari increased its global usage share from 0.11 percent to 0.25 percent since February 2003. Based on KHTML from KDE's Konqueror open source project, Apple Computer's Safari browser was released in January as a public beta test version. The software was downloaded more than five million times during its beta test, according to Apple.

Can you validate the percentage? Is this of total Mac users, or does it consider other platforms?

0.25% is really low. (It must be overall; there's no way Safari is used by only a quarter of a percent of Mac users.)
Thats 1 in 400. It's a wonder anyone supports Safari at all.
Since Macs account for about 3-4% of the internet population (According to the Google Zeitgeist http://www.google.com/press/zeitgeist/archive.html) that means that only about 1 in 14 Mac users is using Safari. (Roughly. Very roughly.)

It's global usage statistics for ALL web users, not just Mac users. It means basically there is one Mac user for every 400 PC users.

PSH. I tried IE for about 30 seconds and then decided it was ugly. Safari is all style, my friend!

you guys are not taking into account that many mac users are still on OS 9.2 or below... i know the school district i work for is just switching all their computers this summer to panther. but in the 3-4% of the world population that do use macintosh, probably only 25-30% of them use os x... and out of all of them, probably only 75% use safari... so you are looking at a very low number over all..
the numbers are right im sure.
