There’s always another route

In researching the weird search-engine stuff, I go back through 3000 to 4000 visitor records, and I’m not just looking at Google and Yahoo and Ask results; I’m also looking for unexpected linkage and browser trends.

For those who may be curious, about 28 percent of visitors here use some form of Firefox, and 11 percent have upregraded Microsoft’s Internet Explorer to version 7. Most of the rest are on IE 6, but two of last week’s callers were on game systems: one on a Sega Dreamcast running Planetweb, and one on a Nintendo Wii using Opera.

I suspect that this place doesn’t look too swift on the Dreamcast, which presumably hasn’t been updated in a while, but I’m guessing that Opera on the Wii looks pretty much like Opera on any other platform.

    IE 7? Valiant, but I dare say brainless, people.

    Not that I am all that happy with FireFox, but still there are some limits…

    Better them than me, I say.

    But if you wave the controller on the Wii, the Dustbury bird flies around the screen.

    I’d buy one just to see that.

    I’m still mulling IE and Firefox. I like FF’s features but system crashes, or hangs, are a lot more common than with IE, at least for me. I basically go online with FF and if I have problems switch over to IE.

    I’ve had a regular visitor from California for some time now using WebTV (MSN TV).
