Web Authoring Tools Report
September 1st, 2005

The following tables illustrates the usage of web authoring tools on the web. The tool is determined by examining the web page meta tag 'generator'. Readers are cautioned that not all authoring packages insert their name in this meta tag, and as such may not be picked up in this survey.

The August survey is based on a sample size of 7,072,598 pages downloaded from 752,274 sites. We detected authoring tool usage on 146,590 sites (19.49% of all sites visited).
