John Gruber of Daring Fireball was moved by the release of new Net Applications mobile browser stats that show Apple’s Mobile Safari with more than three times as much usage as Android to disclose his own site’s mobile usage numbers. Which moves me to share Technologizer operating-system stats for the past month. I’m going to include all operating systems, not just mobile ones.
Here you go:
Windows: 47% (the easy overall winner, but even it doesn’t have a majority)
OS X: 26%
iPod: 1% (is this iPod Touch?)
Everything else: 1% (including .06% via Chrome OS, and .01% apiece via Wii, Google TV, and OS/2)
Looks like 19% of visitors are using iOS, vs. about 2 percent two years ago. Prediction: At some point, iOS will surpass OS X for second place. (No, I’m not guessing when.)
Oh, and if you consider iOS to be a version of OS X–which it is–then OS X is just slightly behind Windows. Or to put it another way: Almost half of visitors come here on an Apple device.
