Lies, damn lies, and statistics. That figure is gained from visitors
to the w3schools.com page. A page devoted to teaching CSS, HTML,
Javascript etc. The figures will be skewed, as the sample population
is web developers, not the internet-at-large.

The only source of statistics I'd respect for demonstrating overall
browser market share is google, and they haven't published that
information in their zeitgeist since the month before their IPO.
