Happy New Year & Browser and OS stats for 2015

I’d like to wish everyone a happy new year on behalf of the entire LQ team. 2015 has been another great year for LQ and we have quite a few exciting developments in store for 2016, including a major code update that is now *way* overdue. As has become tradition, here are the browser and OS statistics for the main LQ site for all of 2015 (2014 stats for comparison).

Browsers
Chrome 47.37%
Firefox 37.81%
Internet Explorer 6.86%
Safari 4.90%
Opera 1.11%
Edge 0.42%

For the first time in many years, browser stats have not changed in any meaningful way from the previous year. Chrome is very slightly up, and Firefox and IE are very slightly down (although Edge does make its initial appearance in the chart).

Operating Systems
Windows 52.42%
Linux 31.45%
Macintosh 10.75%
Android 3.01%
iOS 1.53%

Similar to the browser, OS shares have remained quite stable over the last year as well. 2015 seems to have been a year of stability in both markets, at least for the technical audience that comprises LinuxQuestions.org. Note that Chrome OS has the highest percentage of any OS not to make the chart.
I’d also like to take this time to thank each and every LQ member. You are what make the site great; without you, we simply wouldn’t exist. I’d like to once again thank the LQ mod team, whose continued dedication ensures that things run as smoothly as they do. Don’t forget to vote in the LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards, which recently opened.
