    Hi.
    I was wondering if there was any reliable information about the what the % of the population uses. What I am mostly looking for is how many people use what screen resolution.

    There was a recent CNet article which indicated that around 86% of the Net population now use Internet Explorer, with the rest using Netscape or any other browser.

    Of course, these figures will vary slightly from region to region (in Australia, it's more about 75/25) but it still gives a reasonably good indication.
    My 2 Cents (or is that 2.2 Cents including GST?)

    I think, if I remember correctly, that around 60-65% of users use 800x600, 10% use 640x480, and the rest use something higher than 800x600.

    And yes, 86% sounds about right - my site statistics reflect in the 80s as well.
