I was checking out the browser usage page on Wikipedia and noticed they have a map showing the most popular browser for each given country.
That's pretty neat but wait... is that PhantomJS at the bottom?
PhantomJS, for those unfamiliar, is a headless webkit implementation which means it's sort of like a browser but doesn't have a display. Not having a display makes it great for things like automated testing but super difficult to use as a day-to-day browser.
Initially I didn't see any countries with that brown color indicating PhantomJS but upon closer inspection I saw this:
Can't see any land under the dot, but there must be something there... let's check the area in Google Maps
Hmm, nothing there, let's zoom in...
I think I see something there...
Norfolk Island is something like 10km across with a population a little over 2200 people. You might not have heard of them because they seem to be trying to use PhantomJS to browse the internet ;)
I'm curious how they found the PhantomJS project in the first place, does it come pre-installed on computers in Norfolk? This is what I call internet hard mode, kudos to them.
Note: I'm assuming there is just a server farm here that runs lot of automated tests (maybe bots?) but it's just so much more fun imagining a bunch of confused people fiddling around trying to browse reddit with PhantomJS.
