Subject RE: User-agent percentages?

The trick is to look up a set of lesser clients in one of 
the search engines along with a date, for example:  
   lynx & wisewire & contype & notes & march
at altavista's advance search.  

Then pick some report that admits to a large sample, for example:    
if you poke around you can usually find a site the has 
users drawn from a population similar to the one you 
think your serving.   There are sites
where aol, or microsoft hold huge percentages.

The bottom line: 1 out of 20 still use the Netscape 2 family 
probably these include all your relatives, your banker, the
machine in the demo room, and the boss.
