    graph is flawed beyond belief. No opera mobile?

    Also safari is the only allowed browser ( chrome on iOS identifies itself as safari because of apples rules)

      Opera Mobile is in “Other” because it does not have any meaningful amount of market share.

        LOL, “fanboys believe”… Are there any fanboys here saying Opera Mobile has more market share?

        And can you expand that “Other” to us so we can trust you?

          Opera Mobile has less market share than IE, hence not reported.
