I happen to have created a pie chart based on our user agent statistics from 2012. Like all statistics, it's a rough estimation, but for the benefit of anyone who is curious, I have included it below.
The browser stat pie charts from 2009
, from 2010
, and 2012
are also still available.
The website is implemented primarily in well-formed
styled with CSS
Content for each page is created using a text editor and
stored in a database (currently MySQL), and the software that
puts the pieces together and publishes the results is written
in-house in Perl and maintained using Emacs. Since we only have
one web developer, version control is largely limited to having
copy of the site so that changes can be
tested before publication.
Since late 2013, the stylesheet for our website
has made extensive use of CSS media queries in an attempt
to ensure a reasonable viewing experience on screens of all
shapes and sizes, from large widescreen plasma displays
all the way down to handheld feature-phones. If you encounter
a situation where this doesn't quite work (and especially if
you end up with content hanging off the right side of the
screen where you can't read it), I would appreciate seeing
a screenshot or photo of the problem, so I can investigate
how the stylesheet might be changed to handle the situation
