By | September 4, 2012 | 2 Comments


As promised last month, here comes a new segment and this time it’s for the mobile web browsers only.

Starting with the leader in the pack, Apple’s Safari continues its trend to the 70% mark, thanks to the iPhone and iPad sales, up from 66.22% to 66.43% (0.21 point increase).

Despite the continuous patent issues with Android, it too enjoyed a nice and steady growth, up from 19.41% to 19.97% (0.56 point increase).

Last but not least is Opera Mini, which saw a 0.73 point drop in its market share numbers, down from 9.32% to 8.39%.

That’s all for now, folks.

    The latest build of Firefox for Android is the absolute best mobile browser I have ever seen. It’s simply amazing, usability, functionality, speed, it’s absolutely awesome.
