As one of the most popular sites in the UK, I think the BBC homepage is quite a good sample of browser usage in the United Kingdom. This article analyzes the usage of different platforms, browsers and OS versions on the BBC homepage. 95.1% of people use Windows (most of which use XP), 4.4% use Macs and 0.4% use Linux.

86% of users use Internet Explorer whilst 10% use Firefox. 2.6% use Safari and Opera has a miniscule 0.32%. We’re almost at the point that it’s more important to check your website works fine in WebKit/KHTML than Opera/Presto.
