I want to believe. SVG as an image format.I’ve updated my marketshare spreadsheet for Sep 2010 charting the percentage of web users who can view SVG and Canvas: 43.10%

I also started tracking what percentage of web users can see SVG in an <img> tag. Currently that's at about 16%, up from 8% a year ago. I expect that number to soar dramatically once Firefox 4 and IE9 are released.

  1. (Probably this was already asked/answered but here goes…)

    Jeff, are you building these statistics accounting RSS feeds also? For example, I usually read most blog entries through a RSS feed reader (the NewsFox plug-in for Firefox), so I just wanted to raise the question to make sure this specific kind of users wasn’t messing the whole statistics. “Messing” in the sense that:
    1. News readers usually poll the site every now and then, causing disturbance in actual statistics when compared to “manual” (actually human) users;
    2. The RSS addresses may be missing from the statistics (the motivating question already asked), therefore not accounting this maybe-too-important-to-be-ignored share.

    By the way, I “share” your SVG-as-image desire as well. 😉

  2. Hi Helder,

    As can be seen if you explore the Google spreadsheet, I basically just pull these numbers from three publicly available web stats aggregators. I have no real sense of how they collect it, sorry.
