    Now that's interesting..and weird. Two things I find funny is that Opera isn't even popular in its own country, and there isn't a hint of Firefox or Chrome, second and third most popular browsers, in the entire U.S. Either I'm not understanding the statistic properly, or that is one really screwy measurement.

    Yeah, that's why I thought it would be fun! :D

    (I've never met a Norwegian virtual or otherwise who uses Opera ;) )

    As you said, they are second and third, the graph shows only the most popular browser's usage in the country. ;)

    And just how many have you met? Actually, someone else was expected to ask this (in high dudgeon) but I got impatient waiting.

    Quite a few actually (a friend of mine is married to a Norwegian), after all I am a European & Norway isn't that far from England (I have relatives all over Europe). I also have at least three cyber friends who are Norwegian & all of them use Firefox as a preferred browser as far as I know. Plus, the Norwegian government sends the UK a Christmas tree every year ( I think the Norwegian resistance was grateful for all of those Sten guns the RAF parachuted to them during WW2 ;) ). :D

    I never trust any fish that has been crossed with a musical instrument. It is probably quite nice with laverbread though. ;)

    Friends don’t let friends use Internet Explorer 6. And neither should acquaintances. Educate others about moving off of Internet Explorer 6.


    Well, apart from the odd syntax (off of?), this is actually quite funny. :D

    Yes but IE was doing better on july/august so i wouldn't say its doing better since we have a faster,more secure IE9 now.Chrome is actually doing better if you compare :)

    It isn't used in my country, even in dialect, as far as I know. The adverb 'off' would more likely be followed by the preposition 'from' than 'of'. It does sound odd to English ears. Technically it is a phrasal verb anyway, so I suppose it doesn't matter.
