I wouldn't call non-IE browsers "alternative", that's implying "lesser" in certain dielects.

Rather, how about "competing" (or even "better" Wink ) browsers?

And your figure of 10% is wrong, IE is now down to around 60% on some sites, (including my own), but generally speaking IE is used between 75 and 85% of the time.
