The following application statistics are based on the analysis of web server requests. All data comes from Tor web server logs which are provided in a stripped-down version of Apache's "combined" log format without IP addresses, log times, HTTP parameters, referers, and user agent strings.
This graph shows absolute numbers of requests to Tor's web servers related to Tor Messenger. Initial downloads are requests made by the user to download a Tor Messenger executable from the Tor website. Update pings are requests made by Tor Messenger to check whether a newer version is available.
Note that Tor Messenger has been sunset on April 2, 2018. This graph is soon going to disappear, too.
