This result surprised me, really. I thought that it would be much higher. I understand that it is not a worldwide statistics but app. 1/5 of top 5000 sites using Flash is really not a good sign or is it?
Final conclusion, with a so deep penetration of the Flash Player we can only be happy to develop for the Flash Player
Yesterday I wrote about the new “CS3 essential training” from Lynda and said that the penetration for the Flash Player 9 was about 50%. I had a comment from Benz that told me the penetration of the Flash Player is 83.4% according to Emmy Huang’s blog.
Those number are higher that what I observed on different website I work on, even on this blog (oriented on Flash), the stats are 80% but this is not trustable with my poor 300 visitors/days.
Anyway it’s a great news as I’m wanting to work on Flash 9 at work, and good stats always are a good argument
Great news coming from Ryan Stewart blog’s on Zdnet.He asked to Mike Chambers about the number of downloaded Apollo runtime. Answer 110’000
In terms of penetration of an alpha runtime I guess it’s a quite good results. Even if I’m sure that the cool tools build by the community will make this number increase very quickly.
Read the complete question-answer.
Here’s a quick post to show the number of post containing “Adobe Apollo”. I post it here because I had already see some chart of Technorati, but never found were it was… (okay maybe it’s obvious but forgive my blindness).
Ice Rocket, it allows us to compare trend
Blog Pulse, also compare trends
Google Trends, useful for geo-localized trend
This tool is very useful for marketer but it’s not the only tool that we can use to monitor the result of our web-marketing.
Others free tools usable to monitor buzz :
It’s not so much that I’m a fan a buzz monitoring, but it’s a big part of the thesis that I’m writing, normally in march 30 it will finally be finished! I’ll post a lot more about buzz and web-marketing after this date.
Please if anyone know other free tool to monitor buzz and trends please comment or contact me (top right).
A graph comparing book sales on computer languages between January 2006 and January 2007 revealed that ActionAcript book represented less than 5% of the market [via O'Reilly Radar].
Obviously in this case we can tust blog to see how people react in the real world.
And what if we do politic stat with blog analyses? For example in the French presidential election I compared the big 3 names in no particular order: François Bayrou, Nicolas Sarkozy, Ségolène Royal (sorry for the others …)
Well what can we see? According to the latest statistic made by ipsos for lepoint the stats extracted from the buzz trends seems correct. These tools are great for ego-surfing but even greater for social statistics.
This year it’s really the beging of presidential election 2.0, the candidates in France and as far as I know also in US are using the web very more agresivly. A funny example, try the website chirac.com, you’ll be surprised
The Internet Report of 2006 is out (since December) by ITU (International Telecommunication Union). It’s small and free, there’s a lot of interesting graph there
Have it from the digital.life.

Nearly 100% of users have a 72 DPI screen.
Only 1% of users have a resolution equal to 800×600.
