Who blocks Google Analytics most frequently?
88% of Firefox users
50% of Chrome users
41% of Safari users
@plausible this seems to be a lot.
In my experience users of adblockers are a minority, even on Firefox. I you look at FF's most used Add-on which is uBlock origin, it only has 4 millions users, while FF itself has 200 millions.
Maybe the number of ublock origin users is higher than that because a portion disable telemetry but it still looks unreasonable to see 50% blocking on chrome (it makes sense on FF because tracking protection blocks GG analytics)
@dreeg yeah this is higher than the average web user as this was a very tech savvy audience coming from tech savvy sources such as Hacker News and reading a post about a techie topic (Linux)
@plausible indeed the blog explains that. The toot is a bit misleading if one doesn't read the blog post linked.
Is it a from dev site or a privacy oriented one? The numbers seem high even for a dev site.
