13. Playstation 3 51 0.02%
14. BlackBerry9000 35 0.01%
15. NetFront 34 0.01%

Comment: Internet Explorer's market share continues to drop with 52% of visitors using the Microsoft browser, compared to 62% in 2009. Firefox has made slight ground, along with Safari, but the standout, if any, is Chrome - up 5% from last year. No doubt Chromeís gain has been a combination of Google using all its might to push it, but also because it is an outstanding Internet browser. 2011 will see their market share increase further, and Internet Explorer will continue to lose ground. If Chrome hadnít come along, there is no doubt in my mind that Firefox would have increased their market share by at about 8% to 10%.

14. SunOS 13 > 0.00%
15. Nokia 9 > 0.00%

Comment: Windows gave up about 4% of its market share in 2010, no doubt due to an increase in Macintosh use (up about 2% on 2009, but also because more and more people are using portable devices like smart phones to access the Internet.

Versions of Windows Operating Systems

Windows 7 1. XP 137,833 57.74%
2. Vista 50,887 21.32%
3. 7 45,223 18.94%
4. Server 2003 3,801 1.59%
5. 2000 882 0.37%
6. 98 68 0.03%
7. CE 21.01%
8. ME 6 > 0.00%
9. NT 5 > 0.00%
10. 95 2 > 0.00%

Comment: Thankfully 2010 has seen a drop in Microsoft Vista users - although not as much as I would have hoped. If had a dollar for every hour I wasted on that operating system, and helping others with their Vista problems, I'd be a very happy lad! MS should be embarrassed they even put that to market.

Anyway, FINALLY Windows 7, which an awesome operating system, has increased its market share from a meagre 0.6% in 2009, to a healthy almost 19% in 2010. Windows XP is still the standout though, with a whopping 57% of users still sticking with "old reliable". If you are currently using Windows XP, don't be afraid to move to Windows 7 - you will be truly happy.

If you are currently using Windows Vista - please seek urgent counselling (joking - its not THAT urgent!). It seems that new Windows 7 users have upgraded predominantly from Win XP, rather than Vista. If you are using Windows Vista at the moment, seriously consider going to Windows 7. Also of note, amazingly, there are still a (very) few Windows 98 and Windows 2000 users sticking with it.

Portable Device Statistics

Comment: As you can see from the graphic above, mobile or portable device use increased quite a bit in the last half of 2010, with iPhone use dominating. In fact, iPhone use alone accounted for 1.7% of the total traffic to justweb®. No doubt this trend will continue in 2011, and I'm quite sure iPad use will make a much bigger splash.

21. O2 Online (Uk) 32
22. Danger.Com 31
23. AAPT Limited 29
24. Verizon Internet Services Inc. 23
25. Cox Communications 21

Comment: Interestingly, Optus appears to have had a reversal of fortunes with its mobile Internet division compared to its normal ISP broadband services. More people appear to be using Optus to connect their portable devices to the Internet, followed closely by Telstra Internet. I'm only guessing, but this may be because Optus beat Telstra to market with their iPhone plans and contracts. I predict that in 2011/2012, Telstra Internet will catch up & surpass Optus Internet in this area. 

Top 25 Screen Resolutions (1106 in total)

1. 1024x768 51,691 18.82%

24. 1152x720 691 0.25%
25. 1344x840 679 0.25%

Comment: 1024x768 is still (surprisingly) the most popular screen res - just. It has lost about 8% usage from 2009, but the second most popular (1280x800) has only gained about 2%. However, look at the difference in the actual number of screen resolutions used compared to last year - 1106 in 2010, 632 in 2009. No doubt this is due in part to a wide variety of portable devices hitting the market with their "odd" screen resolutions. Also, there have been some notable gains, such as the TV-style screen resolution of 1366x768 (increased by about 5% from 2009). In 2011, we will see an even bigger rise in 1920x1080 as more and more people use their TVs to access Internet content

Java Support

1. Yes
240,264 87.47%

2. No
34,427 12.53%

Comment: Mirroring 2009, 2010 has seen yet another drop in the number of Java enabled browsers. With a whopping 12.5% of people not being able to see Java content, make sure your website can be viewed without Java being a driving factor.

Connection Speeds (7 in total)

1. Unknown 97,277
2. DSL 83,270
3. Cable 61,224
4. T1 25,421
5. Dialup 5,950
6. OC3 1,382
7. ISDN 167

Comment: As with the previous year (2009), a lot of "unknown" connections, but cable visitor numbers tripled, and DSL visitors doubled in 2010. Nothing to see here folks.

Top 20 Networks (17,841 in total)

ISPs 1. Telstra Internet 50,438
2. Optus Internet - Retail 19,383
3. Iinet Limited 15,817
4. TPG Internet Pty Ltd. 13,474
5. Internet Service Provider 7,060
6. 3G Mobile Service Provider 4,380
7. Adam Internet Pty Ltd 3,601
8. Comcast Cable Communications Inc. 3,107
9. Road Runner Holdco Llc 2,933
10. Primus Telecommunications 2,922
11. Telstra 2,886
12. Vodafone Australia Pty. 2,729

17. Internet Service Provider Australia. 2,009
18. Iseek Communications 1,675
19. Verizon Internet Services Inc. 1,660
20. Internode 1,634

Comment: Again, BigPond (Telstra) is still streets ahead of its nearest rival, Optus. Comparing to the 2009 stats, its seems no company has made much ground over a competitor.

Top 12 Search Engines (20 in total)

Search Engines 1. Google 208,496
2. Bing 15,756
3. Yahoo 5,589
4. Search 2,251
5. Ask 2,106
6. AOL 392
7. Netscape 143
8. Yandex 88
9. Baidu 65
10. MSN 57
11. Altavista 56
12. Images.Google 51

Comment: As far as justweb® goes, traffic from Bing has almost doubled from 2009, but traffic from Google has risen by 25%. Yahoo traffic has remained roughly the same as last year, but of course that means their usage has dropped because overall traffic to our site has risen by over 36%. I would suggest Bing has made a little ground on Google, but from reading these stats you couldn't state that as a fact because they could merely indicate Bing liked JW a little better in 2010.
