As with all statistics, we need to treat them with care.

Perhaps it would be better if we each analysed the September
log files from our own webservers and pooled the results.

I think it would be dangerous to base any decision upon
one day from site, especially when Forrest
aims to have broader scope.

Careful, they might be hidden in the grey 50% part.
I think if we added up all the 0.02% entries for
older browsers then we would get up to 10%

Anyway, what decision are wanting to make?
