Safari logoNet Applications, a site that monitors web traffic, announced today that Apple’s iOS browser Safari won 61.79 percent of all mobile browser web traffic last month, a solid six-point percentage jump from February when it led with 55.41 percent of the market.

At 61.79 percent, Safari ranks high above its competitors, owning 40 percent more than Android’s default browser which holds the No. 2 spot in mobile browser marketshare. Android captured 21.86 percent last month, dropping from 22.82 percent in February.

Safari and Android are the only browsers with marketshare in the double digits. Opera Mini, Chrome, and Microsoft Internet Explorer hold less than 10 percent of the marketshare, with Blackberry and Symbian capturing less than one percent.

    Is this the wrong chart?

    Sam, you’re right. The chart has been updated to reflect the correct numbers. Thanks!

    This is really incredible. I mean, over 61% of market share is a really significant number and, furthermore, the six-point percentage jump from February also means a lot. Well played, Apple, well played.
