Net Applications puts iOS over 2pc web share

Mobile Apple hardware reached a milestone today as new findings showed iOS cracking two percent share of the web for the first time. The iPad, iPhone and iPod reached 2.06 percent of Net Applications' traffic study worldwide and were in even higher use in certain areas. In English-native and other more mobile-driven countries, the share was disproportionately higher, ranging from 3.4 percent in the US to almost 10 percent in Singapore.

Google also reached a historic point as data showed Chrome entering the double digits for the first time. The browser jumped the majority of a point to 10.7 percent.

Most of the rapid shifts occurred in web browsing and favored Apple as well. Safari saw one of its bigger leaps in recent months and moved to 6.3 percent. Microsoft once again lost the most as Internet Explorer dropped over a point to exactly 56 percent, its lowest point ever. Firefox and Opera share was largely flat.

Windows share didn't drop as quickly but did pass a symbolic barrier as it fell below 90 percent for the first time, to 89.7 percent. The Mac recovered from all its losses since May and was back up to 5.25 percent. Linux and other platforms were mostly unchanged.
