This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

ASSI's Guest bloggers

That's IT with AK71.

Monday, November 4, 2013

OK, amusing blog title? Go ahead, please laugh.




Fell off your chair? I hope you were not sitting on a high chair.

After all, AK71 and IT don't mix well. ;p

So, what is this blog post about? It is just to record some observations as to which OS and web browser are number 1 now amongst the readers of ASSI. Statistics are for the last one month:

Number 1 OS is still Windows although at 49%, it is probably not as dominant as before.

Android has a very small lead over iPhone. Actually, reading blogs on a phone must be quite demanding. I don't know why people do it. Of course, with bigger screens available from Samsung and HTC, for examples, perhaps, that is why Android has a slight lead.

Nonetheless, Apple is one against so many. If we add iPad and iPod, then, Android is beaten. Apple is just an amazing company.

What about browsers? It has always been Internet Explorer for me. Only when I started blogging a few years ago did I learn about other browsers. So, being the dinosaur that I am, I am a bit surprised to find that Internet Explorer is number 3 in my blog stats.

Number 1 browser is Safari with a 27% share and number 2 browser is Chrome with a 25% share. My good old trusty Internet Explorer has a 20% share.

Even though I am a "know almost nothing" guy when it comes to IT, these numbers are still interesting to me and tell me how things are changing rapidly (and that I am probably being left behind).

You are Gen X, surely IT things are well within your generation. I have seen many baby-boomer gen people sufting internet on their Ipads, let alone Gen X.

Gen Z is the one you should be afraid to communicate. :P

Hi INVS 2.0,

My generation was about 286, 386 and 486 leh. ;p

I know very little and that is the truth. -.-"

Hi AK, out of curiosity, are those pageviews per week or per day?

Hi Ak,

Very similiar stats to my blog. Android is winning against Iphone by a very small percentage. However for mine on browsers, chrome was first with safari coming in second.

I use chrome too :p
It's much better than internet explorer. You should try it. ;)

Well, chrome is by google and IE is by Microsoft. I think google is a better company now. Haha.

Hi Elvin,

Aiyoh, my blog where got so popular? These are numbers for the last one month. ;p

I am also blogging a lot less in recent weeks. So, numbers have been declining. :)

Google is a good company. I agree. Without them, I wouldn't be blogging! ;p

I am a creature of habit. It takes quite a bit to move me out of my comfort zone. IE still works for me (for now). LOL.

I did try Chrome, Firefox and Safari though just to see what they are like. Chrome is fast!

Safari is the browser that comes with the iPad. Oh, my iPad finally died last night. :(

I remember when Pentium was a BIG thing! ;p
