While browsing around for browser statistics today I figured that it would be nice to see a dataset from www.google.com, it ought to be somewhat well balanced and should provide a pretty decent "general" cut of the netizen population. However, googling (oh, the irony) for a while I couldn't find any such public datasets available.

Is any data like this (from Google specifically) available, either for free or subscription?

But there are global stats offered by statistics companies that should give you the same information you;re looking for. Net Applications and statcounter are two commonly cited in the press.

That's what I thought, thanks for confirming. I do know about both of the sources you mentioned, but thanks anyway! – macke Dec 8 '10 at 20:12
