Browser Market Shares

I haven't written about the latest market shares of web browsers, so here they for February 2012 as recorded by NetMarketShare


Internet Explorer still leads the pack at 52.8%

Firefox retains second place with a share of 20.9%

Google's Chrome is in third place with a share of 18.9% and rising all the time. It is likely to overtake Firefox soon.

Apple's Safari is hovering around the 5% mark.


However, for mobile browsing, Safari dominates thanks to the ubiquity of the iPhone and iPad. It stands at 61% in February 2012.

Android has just under 19%, while Blackberry languishes at under 1.7%.
