Perhaps a bit off topic, but ...

I was hoping a few of you might have (or wouldn't mind asking around
to get some) stats on visitors using IE 5 on the Mac. As a percentage
of users, I expect it to be small but I have no hard numbers.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

IMHO - None. No hard data needed.

I will never support that browser again, nor will I recommend it be supported. It's very old, outdated, no longer downloadable, nobody supports it and it's crazy-broken.

If this is elitist in any way so be it. You have to draw the line somewhere.

not sure how valid these stats are...
somewhere between .05 and .3 - but it sounds to high to me.

I'm monitoring Google Analytics on two sites. Out of 3,600 total
visitors to both sites, one person came in on Explorer for Mac
(version 5.23). We had more visitors using Netscape (14).

Um, what market? I just checked for my site's visitors, and 4 of
31,000 hits were from IE 5/Mac. Then again, only 45% of my hits are
from IE at all.

Hi Zack,

On one of the B to C sites I manage there were 112,000 unique
visitors, 121 of whom used IE 5 on the Mac. On a B to B site I manage,
albeit with much lower traffic, 0 visitors used IE 5 on the Mac.

I just checked google analytics for one of my sites that's been
getting a lot of mainstream traffic. In the past two months, we've
received more than 189,000 visits. I don't see IE 5/ Mac, although I
do see 4 visits from an unspecified IE.

Also, IE/Windows is about 45% of total visitors.

IE 5.5 is DEAD!

After a little searching, I found that ...
* One of our biggest clients had less than 30 Mac IE 5.5 users over
the last 3 months (averaging about 0.003% of visitors)
* Only one of our clients requires us to test IE 5.5 (on the PC) and
none require Mac IE 5.5

This is all good evidence that development time should not be wasted
fixing IE 5.5 (for any OS).

Thanks.

Based on 63,000+ visits and 1,500,000+ page views over the past three
months for one of our sites, we running into 0.44% IE on Mac usage --
that's against an audience where you might be concerned about those things.
