For development purposes, I'd like to get a rough estimate of the distribution of browser usage share, but everything I've been able to find just states overall market share. Is it possible to get browser share by OS?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I thought this would be easy to find. Apparently that is not the case. – John Conde Nov 24 '11 at 5:53

I would do this on a case by case basis per client. If you are developing a new site for them I would look at the analytics data of their existing site to determine the browser by OS of their existing target audience and then develop the new site accordingly.

I don't know of any existing data sources that show this in general although I am sure they exist somewhere.
