    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 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.

    “Panther is the fourth major release of Mac OS X in three years and we plan to reach 10 million active Mac OS X users this quarter, which is 40 percent of our entire installed base,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “This is a major milestone in the successful adoption of the world’s most advanced operating system.”
    i dont wanna watch the whole keynote again to find it, but during the keynote given during the opening of the iTMS Europe Steve talked about OS X user base. I believe he said they were closer to 60% now, which is one of the 3 biggest OS transitions in history (the other 2 being DOS -> Windows, and next being Windows (NT kernel) -> Longhorn)
