What's worse is that if I first visit that site in one browser or OS, and then come back to it 99 more times that day with a different browser and/or OS, only the first one is counted.

    This is also a world market share, which even if it was accurate (which it's wildly not so), it's not particularly relevant for a lot of us. China still has a very large percentage of XP users, most of which are using the pirated version of XP. So this neither translates to any real market share for western businesses or even a real statistic that means anything.
    . . .not sure, but sure did sound pretty. . .
