OK granted, but the usefullness of browser statistics is limited to knowing
how many people are using the top browser versions, because it is
invariably these that make an impact on your application of new technology.
If your objective is to build your site to work right down to the lowly
text-only browser, then you shouldnt be giving a monkeys what browser
people look at your site with. If on the other hand you want to employ
newer technologies then you have to start eliminating some browsers, and
which do you loose? Well, the least popular I presume.
