Well, I just made a decision for the future design of this website. Here is how it breaks down:
The most used browser is Firefox (FF)
Firefox 46.9 %
The second most used browser is Internet Explorer (IE)
Msie 6.0 23.7 %
Msie 5.5 2.4 %
The remaining browsers are a mix of Safaria, Opera, and misc Netscape broswers.
Based on these statistics, I am going to design my site from this point forward based on these browsers. This will lead to a small potential breakdown in compatability for users of older browsers. This change in design policy, however, will greatly increase the cross-browser and cross-platform compatability for majority of the site visitors. For most visitors there will be no visible changes, for others there may be major changes. Stay tuned.
