I've got access to the logs for over 80 NHS sites (not the most technologically advanced users, generally) and 3rd generation and below browsers only account for 13% of the users. Having said that I do also have a stalwart of Netscape 1.2 users (4 - the same 4 every month!).

Not very surprisingly IE 4 wins by a mile, with 48% of the users, followed by IE 5 with 22% and Netscape 4 with 17%.
