The first month of the new year continued in the footsteps of the old one. Even the once-volatile mobile browser landscape is now relatively stable, though Chrome is continuing to make its presence felt. And one long-standing oddity of the usage numbers continues: although Android is outselling iOS on a global basis by some margin (and has done so since mid-2010), Safari punches well above its weight in the usage numbers. With some data from Akamai’s State of the Internet report, we can get a little more insight into what’s going on.
The big changes were Internet Explorer picking up 0.3 points and Firefox dropping 0.27 points. The rest were little changed—Chrome up 0.06 points, Safari down 0.02 points, Opera down 0.05 points. Without some big event to shake up the desktop browser market, big swings are unlikely.
