    http://www.thecounter.com/ - It provides details on overall web traffic across the world. Hopefully this is what you are looking for.

    TheCounter.com's "global" stats can be found here: http://www.thecounter.com/stats/ and viewed for free.

    The "global" refers to the fact that these are the aggregate totals of all the counters run by that organisation, not any geographic implications. Go look at the domains registered by their counter, and observe the huge skew towards people from .com, .net, and unknown domains. I'd be surprised if they represented a decent geographic sample.

    Other things to note: the counter's browser detection is not good - go back to august-november 2001 and watch them fail to notice the release of IE6 for 2 months.

    There are no "perfect" browser stats - everything is messed up by demographics. The "best" stats are those for your site, but those can be messed up if your site is only compatible with one browser, or your stats package is rubbish, or lots of users are behind a big caching proxy, or, or, or....

    Charles Upsdell has a good (if very brief) intro to the pros and cons of stats over here: http://www.upsdell.com/BrowserNews/stat.htm as well as providing summaries of stats from a few more sources and links to a few further sources.
