Top 3 Browser Version Usage Across The World:

The data is from StatCounter and is based on visitor statistics from more than three million websites for the first half of June. According to StatCounter their monthly sample size exceeds 15 billion page views,

  •  Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 is still the top browser across the Globe . IE8 is the most widely used web browser in the world by quite some margin.
  • The IE9 situation. We also see that IE9, Microsoft’s latest version of IE, has not yet been able to pass even IE7. It will likely get a good boost at the end of this month, though, since an upgrade will be pushed out through Windows Update. It will have to be approved by the end user, so we’ll see how many actually upgrade. We wrote about this Microsoft dilemma with IE yesterday.
  • Safari and Mac… and IE6. The latest version of Safari, version 5, is used only barely more than IE6. Of course, it’s used primarily on Mac, which is a smaller market than the overall Windows PC market. And of course, Mac users also have access to other browsers. IE6 is no doubt closely coupled to the still-common Windows XP.
  • Firefox 4 already the top Firefox version. Less than three months after it was released (March 22), Firefox 4 has become the most common version of that browser. The shift to the new version continues to march along quite smoothly, judging by Firefox download stats.
  • Beta testing. It’s clear that a ton of users are involved in beta testing various browser versions, especially for Chrome and Firefox. Future versions of browsers are present here, like Firefox 5, and Chrome 13.
  • Chrome’s silent upgrades in action. It’s obvious that Google is in the middle of upgrading (automatically, as you know) Chrome 12 users to Chrome 13. Which version are you running right now?
  • Wow, iPad. In spite of the iPad being available little more than a year, Safari for iPad has a 0.68% share of the web browsing already.
  • Old browser versions. This chart makes it painfully clear how common it is for people to hang on to older browser versions for quite some time. Many probably only upgrade when they upgrade their OS, or their computer, judging by what we’re seeing here.

The Mobile Web refers to the use of Internet-connected applications, or browser-based access to the Internet from a mobile device - such as a smartphone or tablet PC - connected to a wireless network.Traditionally, access to the Web has been via fixed-line services. However, the Web is becoming more accessible by portable and wireless devices and in 2008 mobile access to the Internet exceeded desktop computer-based access for the first time (source: International Telecommunications Union, Oct 2009)

"the war for your digital wallet"According to an Olswang report in early 2011, smartphones are experiencing accelerating rates of adoption: 22% of UK consumers already have a smartphone, with this percentage rising to 31% amongst 24–35 year olds.

Growth in demand for advanced mobile devices boasting powerful processors, abundant memory, larger screens, and open operating systems has outpaced the rest of the mobile phone market for several years.[According to a study by ComScore, over 45.5 million people in the United States owned smartphones in 2010 out of 234 million total subscribers. Despite the large increase in smartphone sales in the last few years, smartphone shipments only make up 20% of total handset shipments, as of the first half of 2010
