Mac share continues rise


By

Continuing the long-term trend of a rising share of online traffic, users of the Mac accounted for 7.94% in June of those measured, according to Net Applications data. That's a rise of almost a half of a percent from 7.48% in May.

With the iPhone's share added, which was flat on last month (0.16%), users of the fairer platform accounted for 8.1% of online traffic. Of course, Windows users take the lion's share with 90.89% of web traffic.

Though still paltry, Linux' share was 0.8% which, if memory serves, and is up markedly (nearly a third) in recent months.

In terms of browsers, Firefox has yet to crack 20%, a milestone IGM expected to fall before the end of last month. Users of the world's No 2 browser accounted for 19.03% in June.

Safari's share also grew, rising to 6.31% last month from 6.25% in June. This indicates that Firefox' hold on the faithful remains stable at roughly one-in-four.

The browser Top five looks like this:

01 Internet Explorer--73.01% (73.75%)
02 Firefox--19.03 (18.41)
03 Safari--6.31 (6.25)
04 Opera--0.73 (0.71)
05 Netscape--0.67 (0.62)

Oddly, Netscape's share actually rose slightly last month. AOL stopped development of the one-time dominant browser.
