Just to illustrate how variable browser usage stats are from site to site.

Just because someone who browses this site uses Safari, doesn't mean the people who will be browsing YOUR site will also be using Safari.

Design web sites assuming any of the major browsers can/will be used to browse your site. Basically speaking, if you don't get all fancy with your CSS, all you need to do is write compliant code and most all browsers will render the page relatively the same. The only main exceptions are small devices, text only browsers, and version specific bugs (IE 5 & 6 come to mind).
