Internet Explorer 8 is Now Available

There has been a jump in Internet Explorer 8 activity on my site since it was release a couple of weeks ago. It jumped from about 5% of site activity to about 15%. Not surprisingly this increase has come from IE6 and IE7. However, what really intrigues me is how much Internet Explorer 6 is still being used. It still represents a little over 20% of total activity. See chart on right, or for a live graph see http://RichardLees.com.au/Sites/Demonstrations The data is kept up to within 15 minutes of real time. You are able to slice and dice the web activity via the PerformancePoint graphs or "ThinSlicer on Weblogs". Note, these thin client cube browsers work best with IE.

I think IE 6 is still the standard for a lot of enterprises. People use IE 7 or 8 (or more likely Firefox or Chrome) at home and IE 6 at work.

Maybe all those enterprises will roll out IE8, but I doubt it, I think it won't happen until they replace XP.
