    You can always go to thecounter.com, but like I've said before, don't take their stats as law.

    http://www.ews.uiuc.edu/bstats/ (US university)
    http://awstats.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/awstats.pl (sourceforge project)
    http://globalstats.hotlog.ru/ (Russian hit counter, I think)
    http://www.ranking.pl/rank.php?stat=browAL (Polish hit counter, I think)

    I'm not aware of any publicly available UK-centric stats sources at present (If you find one, please post it here, because I'd be interested, too).

    always remember when looking at the stats to take a flying guess at the number of users who are sending false info from their systems (for example opera seems to come set as ie6 standard)

    95% IE 5/6
    5% everything else

    (Un)Fortunately, that's all there is to it.

    vischo:

    That can change radically, depending on the demographic of your audience. For instance, The sourceforge project I listed above gets 10% mozilla. I can point you to a mac-centered site that, at the end of last year, was getting less than 40% of its hits from IE, (most of the rest being chimera/camino)

    General stats can inform, but the ones that matter are the ones for the site you're working on.

    In other words, be sure that the browser stats package you're using is detecting browsers properly. Good ones will detect Opera correctly, even if it's pretending to be IE. There are few browsers that do a perfect camoflage job.
