Prototyping with Firefox on a Mac

Yesterday evening a blog post appeared on The Interaction Designer’s Coffee Break introducing pidoco┬░. I am following this blog for quite a while and can recommend it for your next coffee break. In Henrik Olsen’s own words he describes his blog as “a site for people engaged in the various fields of making the web a better experience for the users”.

Since his post our website’s traffic increased a lot, which we are very happy for. Our web analytics for today shows a very interesting pattern:

Firefox (Gecko) is by far the most popular browser (about 66%) among our visitors, followed by all WebKit-Browsers (about 24%). IE gets only a share of about 8%. We are observing this since our website is online, but every time we get a lot of traffic we are excited to confirm this pattern.

A similar, because uncommon pattern is the distribution of operating systems. Windows XP has about 45%, Mac OS about 35%, and Windows Vista about 15%.

Although the share of Internet Explorer is quite small, we hope that Microsoft starts implementing SVG for IE9. There are already some rumors that it might happen some day.

Speak up! Let us know what you think.
