  • Apple Devices Bring Big Traffic to Gov. Websites


    Chances are, if you've visited a government website any time recently, you likely did so from an Apple device.

    According to new data from the Digital Analytics Program, Apple devices account for an exceedingly high number of Government website visits.

    The platform, which reveals traffic data for the last 90 days, points to strong traffic originating from Macs and iOS devices. In fact, more than 25 of government website traffic data originates today from individuals on Apple devices.

    Based on the current data available, just under 17% of the well over 1.3 billion visits analyzed came from iDevices over the last three months. But close to 10% came from Macs. And what about Safari? It's third among browsers, claiming 20 percent of visits in the browser category.

    To peruse all the data, check out the cool platform here.

      Your browser stores metadata that supplies that information to any website that asks. The amount of info they can get without your permission is kinda scary to be honest

      Because your browser tells the servers what device you're using, OS version, browser and version, your ISP, etc.. that's how they can tell.

      Anybody can get that info, and it's not hard because your computer offers it up to make sure you get the best browsing experience. A while back I used to frequent a forum and a guy had a little banner animation in his sig that said "you're on xx computer running xx OS with xx browser on ISP xxx right now"

      I'm not disputing that. I ran websites so I know exactly how easy and important it is. I'm more worried about the other trackers and fingerprints browsers offer up.
