  1. Wow! Thank you very much. I can see this being very useful for students. I can already think of a couple of studies I would like to do with this data.

  2. I’m confused by your including Opera (software) among a bunch of hardware counts; Nokia, iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry and Sony PSP.

    My mobile device – a HTC Touch, runs Windows Mobile 6 and Pocket IE as standard and although Opera and other browsers are available, I expect most users to go with the default option, so how come Windows Mobile doesn’t appear as a device type (that would equate to the hardware) and how come Pocket IE (as the browser) is nowhere?

  3. Very Nice. I notices something very interesting. As I compared IE to FireFox I saw that whenever ID dipped, FireFox rose. So I copied the FireFox line, flipped it vertically, and it is almost an exact match to the IE line.
    Clearly IE and FireFox are battling it out and when one wins the other looses.

    Thank you for this great tool.

  4. i currently use kijiji a lot across canada and i was wondering if you folks can either instruct me or put me in touch with the usa market so that i can advertise in the states. how do i do this? thanks gordon
