IE8 represents less than 7% of our visits

DPR seems atypical in their viewer browser selection.  I have to question whether that a typical nature of visitors is a result of the site or the visitor?

My own website, which is in the USA so you could expect higher IE use than rest of world, gets only 9.6% of visits from IE 8. There are no impediments to IE visits.

This compares to 25.1% Safari, all versions. I guess this is because Apple headquarters are located nearby.

More likely due to mobile usage, which for forums needs to be thrown out since most forum posting is done from the desktop and no way Apple has 25.1% desktop share.  Cupertino or not

Do you have evidence for this? What is the mobile posting percentage vs. mobile viewing percentage? Does that take into account temporary issues with posting from mobile computers?

BTW, I am currently posting from an iPad using Chrome (I installed Chrome because I was unable to post using Mercury, my previous browser of choice on the iPad).
