Android web browser claims biggest user share

Android’s native web browser can now lay claim to being the most popular mobile browser, according to StatCounter‘s latest survey. Mapping use over the past year, Google’s mobile internet browser has grabbed around 23 percent of all users, up from just over 14 percent back in February 2011. The phone and tablet-based browser may have soaked up BlackBerry and Nokia users on its way to the top, with the two companies dropping browser share to six and 11 percent, respectively. Opera continues to hold its own, with a stable market share of around 21 percent throughout 2011, while the iPhone’s Safari isn’t far behind, notching up 20 percent by the end of last month. Conspicuous by its absence, Windows Phone’s Internet Explorer hasn’t made the table just yet and Google is surely hoping to see its mobile version of Chrome enter the table soon — presumably once it’s available on more than one device.
