Open The Web in French

I was checking what were the countries had inhabitants speaking French and the probability of issues to have bugs with regards to Opera browsers. Open The Web from Opera is trying to make the Web more interoperable by contacting Web sites owners, developers who introduced bugs in their development in a way that makes the site not accessible to many people. Wikipedia has a handy map for French speaking countries.

The list of countries include: Algérie, Andorre, Belgique, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Bénin, Cambodge, Cameroun, Canada, Comores, Côte d'Ivoire, Djibouti, Dominique, France, Gabon, Guinée, Guinée équatoriale, Haïti, Liban, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Maroc, Maurice, Mauritanie, Monaco, Niger, Roumanie, Rwanda, République du Congo, République centrafricaine, République démocratique du Congo, Sainte-Lucie, Seychelles, Suisse, Sénégal, Tchad, Togo, Tunisie, Vanuatu.

I was wondering today what was the browser landscape in all these countries. Unfortunately the data set is often too small for many african countries which makes difficult to assess things precisely. For example, in October 2010, statscounter gives 60% of market share for Opera in Cameroun and 70% in Gabon. I haven't found yet a practical service giving data where I could just plug a script to analyze the data auto-magically.
