By | August 1, 2013 | 2 Comments



In the least eventful time of the year (summer that is), we got a fresh set of data from Net Applications, which, depending on your browser of choice and fanboyism levels, will either make or break your day.

Despite the slowing iPhone and iPad sales, Apple’s Safari has managed to increase its market share by 0.71 point, up from 58.04% to 58.75%.

Sitting tight in the second place is Android Browser, which saw a tiny jump in its numbers, up from 20.58% to 20.59% (0.01 point increase).

Opera Mini on the other hand saw a significant (1.74 point) decrease in its share, down from 11.16% to 9.42%.

Countering that is Chrome, which saw a 0.69 point increase in its market share, up from 3.75% to 4.44%.

Lastly, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, which struggles to gain any significant traction, down from 2.37% to 1.88% (0.49 point decrease). At least it’s more popular than Firefox.

That’s all for now, folks.
