As always it depends on your user-base. I'm sure DueProps does attract early adopters (which you yourself mention) however my eCommerce is still 40-60% IE users; simply because I do a lot of B2B transactions and some IT departments -still- use Internet Explorer and some self-employed businesses are not tech-savvy enough to make the change off of IE. It's all relative. But your stats are interesting all the same.

Agreed.

I run a niche site used primarily by redditors, and IE usage is around 2%. A tech blog I write has around 4% IE usage.

However, Wikipedia reports about 30% of their users are on IE [1].

IE is on the decline but it can't be dismissed yet [2].

Heavily depends of user-base.

My G/A account includes a consumer-focused site getting millions of UVs monthly, IE accounting for 49% market share, of which only 80% are IE8/9.

On the other hand my blog just had 20K visitors from HN, 65% on Chrome.
