Statcounter is a good source to analyze current and past market structure for OS, browser, etc (based on internet browsing stats). However their detection of Sailfish is not correct.

So, if you'd like to see some improvement there please go to this page http://gs.statcounter.com/detect with Sailfish Browser (and also Webcat if you have installed it). Probably you'll see wrong detection. If so, then klick "edit or amend" and fill on the correct data for browser you are using.

As minimum you should have:

  • device type: Mobile Device
  • browser name: SailfishBrowser or Webcat (depending what you are using)
  • operation system: Sailfish
  • hardware vendor: Jolla
  • hardware model: Jolla
  • screen width: 540
  • screen height: 960

Technically Sailfish Browser is Gecko or even Firefox as it is the same engine, so maybe that could be kept as it is (someone from Jolla should comment what should be preferable semantics).

I've done this twice last week, but no improvement yet (maybe they have long update cycle). Maybe they just need some critical mass, not just one statistical error and our community would be perfect to help.

the useragent holds both firefox and SailfishBrower both at version 26.0 funny is that it shows as Maemo ;)
