It's customary and traditional that we celebrate every new 1,000 members here and share the traffic stats. This time it's 46,000!!!!

There were 1.6 million page views in the last month! (we get around 53,000 pageviews a day on average). It took us just 30 days to get this latest 1,000 members--we're averaging one new member every 43 minutes.

Thanks as always to all the community members who make this growth possible, and especially to the moderators who approve new members, blog posts and otherwise answer questions and keep the website running smoothly.

If we continue at the rate of approximately 1,000 members/month we should be at the 50,000 member milestone by the end of the first quarter of 2014!

I'm really surprised at the dominance of Chrome.  I mean, I use it myself, but I figured it was kind of a hackerish thing. Didn't know if was the dominant browser.  Though I guess the numbers are skewed since this is not a mainstream website.

Wow there are other browsers ?

Yes, the percentage using Chrome surprised me also. I have both IE and Chrome on my PC because I need Chrome to use Feedly.

Chrome is more popular because not only does it run at faster speeds then IE in most cases, A large portion of the Diy Drones Community is made of "hackerish" type people who enjoy tinkering with Drones! :)

Hi Robert,

I used FireFox for HTML web creation but stuck with Internet Explorer for everything else as long as I could, but it became more and more problematic, crashing, really long load times and failures to load.

Oliver recommended Chrome and I tried it, so much better than Explorer.

My wife switched to Chrome too and she runs an online handmade fused glass jewelry business.

Basically everything Microsoft does eventually gets so bloated and so compromised it eventually turns to - well you know what it turns to.

Chrome just keeps on working, really hate it that they removed IGoogle though.
