Microsoft Controls 77% US Web Traffic, Android,iOS struggles


The chart above shows the share of platforms driving traffic to websites in the U.S. It's not a perfect measure of which platform is the most used, but it's a good short hand representation since most users surf the web with each operating system.
While Windows remains dominant, it's becoming less important. Over the last six months, it lost a few percentage points to iOS, as you can see.


Despite the growth of mobile platforms, Windows remains the number one operating system by a long shot, according to data from comScore.

Stepping back further, six years ago it controlled 90% of the market. And there doesn't seem to be any reason to believe Windows is going to reverse the trend anytime soon.

 At the end of last year Android’s unit share reached 51% which is down from about 57% during the third quarter. iOS reached 23%, followed by Symbian at 12%, RIM at 9%, Bada at 2.4%, Windows Phone at 1.6% and Other at 1%
