I thought I'd share some more recent figures.

According to:

nginx is now the second most popular web server, although those figures are a 
old (Jan 4th 2012).

Netcraft puts nginx in 3rd place across all domains, although apache
and IIS share continues to fall, while nginx is rising:

and for active sites, nginx is in 2nd place ahead of IIS:

Developer       January 2013    Percent February 2013   Percent Change
Apache          103,682,570     55.50%  101,558,682     54.92%  -0.58
nginx           22,227,083      11.90%  21,970,144      11.88%  -0.02
Microsoft       21,211,254      11.35%  21,484,151      11.62%  0.26
Google          15,022,947      8.04%   14,976,221      8.10%   0.06

I also know that nginx is being used to shift a huge volume of bits, rather
than just number of active sites. See, for example,

(and I have to declare an interest here, I work for them).
