Wikipedia Definition:
The term "browser wars" refers to the competition for dominance in the web browser marketplace. The term is used to denote two specific periods of time: the competition between market-dominating Netscape Navigator and its eventual defeat by Microsoft Internet Explorer during the late 1990s, and the competition from 2003 onwards between the dominating Internet Explorer and several other emerging browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera and, since mid-2008, Google Chrome.

Most of the time I look at these drill-down charts, I'm looking for the "percentage of people who are on 3.6," and the charts seem over-specific for me. Meaning while some may, I'm sure most don't care what build of Windows 7 people are on, etc. Could we have some sort of checkbox on this (and other) charts to combine all the builds of each version?
