The usage of the varnish in the Nordic countries

The Varnish http accellerator has gained some general usage in the Nordic countries over the last months.

In Norway, using the top list from TNS Gallup , varnish now runs on 13 of the top 30, and 27 of the top 100 sites on the list. Including in these results are also major sites finn.no and nrk.no, new since my last probes.

In Denmark, using the top list from FDIM, varnish runs on 3 sites in the top 15.

In Finland, using the top list from TNS Gallup, varnish runs on 4 of the top 100 sites.

And finally, in Sweden, using the top list from the KIA-index, varnish runs on 7 sites in the top 100, and 13 sites of the whole list.

Remember of course, that these top sites are generally pay-to-be-included lists, and there may exist sites with far more hits than the ones on the lists. yr.no for instance, a very popular Norwegian weather site, does use varnish, but is not included on the TNS Gallup list.

For reference, I have also done som simple non-weighted probing of the most hitted web sites for netcraft toolbar users, showing probably a bit more geeky cut of the browsing population, actually showing that yr.no and the infamous Pirate Bay also uses varnish.

Disclaimer: Working with the developers of Varnish is part of my day job.

  1. [...] There have been some months, and it is time to run my poking scripts again, looking for sites that run Varnish. There is no deep magic here. I just parse the available top lists that I know of, and peek at the HTML headers of the sites that are listed. If there are subsites linked from the front page of the site, I scan them too. This means that twitter.com shows up, though Twitter only runs Varnish on it’s search site. Subsites with a Varnish match are shown in parenthesis in the results. [...]
