"By Net Application's Web browser reckoning, IE's market-share
has dropped to 57.1%, an all-time low. Chrome's market-share, in
the meantime, has climbed above 10% for the first time. Apple's
Safari is also showing strong gains by reaching the 5.9% mark.
"'Safari!?' you ask? Based on my analysis of the numbers, Safari
is gaining not because it's suddenly appearing on more PCs, but
because of the incredible growth of the iOS-powered devices, the
iPod Touch, the iPhone, and the iPad. The Web, you see, really is
going mobile, and it's not just in the U.S. with all the rich kids
trying out their new iPads. China, India, the most popular Web
platform in the twenty-teens may well turn out to be mobile
devices, not PCs."
