Japanese web browser preferences | 世論 what japan thinks

  1. 1. 4/3/14, 2:33 PMJapanese web browser preferences | 世論 What Japan Thinks Page 1 of 4http://whatjapanthinks.com/2010/01/21/japanese-web-browser-preferences/ Demographics This recent survey from iShare into web browsers contains some fascinating and surprising data on preferences amongst a quite experienced sample of internet surfers. Between the 14th and 17th of December 2009 468 members of the CLUB BBQ free email forwarding service completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 57.3% of the sample were male, 33.3% in their twenties, 34.6% in their thirties, and 32.1% in their forties. As you can see from Q1, most of the sample have over 10 years of web use under their belts, yet although one associates Internet Explorer with newbies and Firefox with experts, the data shows Explorer about a third ahead of Firefox. Sleipnir is basically a new skin for Internet Explorer, but it does seem quite popular in my office, and Lunascape is a three-in-one Internet Explorer plus Firefox plus Google Chrome/Safari. Of course, Opera is the best web browser by far. Research results Q1: How long have you been using the internet? (Sample size=468) All Male N=268 Female N=200 Less than ten years 16.0% 13.1% 20.0% Ten to fifteen years 53.0% 50.7% 56.0% Fifteen years or more 31.0% 36.2% 24.0%
