Macs in Chemistry

Insanely Great Science

Annual Site Review


At the end of each year I have a look at the website analytics to see which items were the most popular.

Over the year there were 90,006 visitors, an increase of 28% over 2019, spending an average of 2.5 minutes per session, looking at the regular visitors there are around 4000 who visited 20-200 times per year. The US provided 28% of the visitors and the UK 8% with Germany, India, China and Japan around 5%. As might be expected 57% of the visitors were using a Mac, but 23% of the visitors were Windows users, 9% iOS and 6% Android, also 4% Linux. There has been a gradual increase in the number of visitors using mobile devices.

Again the most popular page was Fortran on a Mac which has been updated a couple of times this year with reader suggestions. Other popular pages include the Reviews and the Hints and Tutorials. The page describing the update to iBabel was particularly popular.


The post about Scientific Applications under Catalina made it to number 4 in the years listing and elicited a significant amount of reader feedback.
