w3schools - Browser Statistics, also OS Platform Statistics and Browser Display Statistics


FF (Firefox) continue to gain market share from Microsoft IE browsers.



Same finding as above (from w3counter) - that 1024x768 and larger is what users have.

According to the data to the right, 93% (57% + 36%) has monitors with at least 1024x768 pixels resolution.


Color depth is at large no concern any longer (in general).

Though specific devices may have its own limitations and more colors adds size to graphics and photos.
