Mobile browsing has more than doubled in the last year and now accounts for over 6% of all online activity, a Web statistics company said today.
Apple’s Safari, the default browser on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, rules the usage share roost, representing 53% of the mobile browsing market.
Two trends are clear. Phones and tablets are stealing browsing share from desktops at an accelerated pace. – Vince Vizzaccaro, a vice president with metrics firm Net Applications
It’s Friday, Friday…
Another month passes by as we look at the August market share stats to find out, how web browsers competed at the end of summer.
Internet Explorer is approaching the 50% market share mark, as it’s now down another 1.13 point, from 52.72% to 51.59%.
It’s August already as we look at the July’s web browser market share numbers. As you will see from the stats below, this month was awful for everyone but WebKit.
Internet Explorer is first in our list and there are no surprises here. It has lost some of its market share again, down from 53.68% to 52.71% (0.97 point decrease).
Firefox 5 did not change the situation for Mozilla as its browser market share continues to grind lower, down from 21.67% to 21.47% (0.2 point decrease).
Google’s first product that has been advertised on TV in the UK, Google Chrome, has become more popular than Firefox. Seems like advertising works!
Yes, that’s right. Chrome is now the second most used web browser in the UK after having overtaken Firefox. That is, according to StatCounter. Being only just ahead of Firefox, Chrome currently possesses 22 percent of UK users. Internet Explorer, however, still has more market share than both of them combined, lying at 45 percent.
As Internet Explorer is heading towards the 49% market share mark and Firefox continues its downtrend, we see interesting times are approaching indeed, but as for now, let’s focus on what had happened over the course of June.
No surprises here, Internet Explorer has lost some of its market share again, down from 54.27% to 53.68% (0.59 point decrease).
In the week after the arrival of Firefox 5, Firefox 4’s market share dropped by more than half, going from 16% to 7.2% according to analytics company StatCounter. During the same period, Firefox 5’s share of the market rose form 0.50% to 10%, signifying that the new version took on the decline of Firefox 4 and more.
By comparison, Chrome’s most recent upgrade made Firefox’s gains seem less dramatic. With the release of Chrome 12, Chrome 11’s share plummeted from 17% to 2.7% in the first seven days, a drop of approximately 84% in usage. Chrome 12’s market share, on the other hand, jolted up from 0.70% to 15.5% in the same time frame.

For many weeks the kingdom was full of joy as kings, sorcerers and even peasants, celebrated the victory on the Internets. Such was the feast that alchemists themselves revealed the Philosopher’s Stone secrets and flooded everyone with gold.
According to the StatCounter, IE6 market share (4.26%) has been surpassed by its superior brother, IE9, which is currently responsible for the 4.34% of Internet traffic. Still a long way to go…
