Holy leaping iPhone share!


By

Although still off from June's tally (7.94%), the Mac's share of web traffic was up from July (7.76%). According to freshly released Net Application's data for August, users of the fairer platform accounted for 7.86% of web traffic.

The big news in last month's data is the iPhone's share of traffic, which shot up to 0.3% in August from July's 0.19%. That's a 58% surge, which is born out by sales estimates indicating that Apple sold sold 6-million 3G handsets in under two months.

Together Mac and iPhone users account for 8.16%, which is just North of the previous combined total high of 8.1% in June.

Despite much hopeful prognostication, Firefox 3 has failed to super charge market share growth. Yes, the browser's share of online traffic continues to grow, but the world's favorite open-source web client has yet to crack 20%, a milestone that most expected to see pass back in July.

Here's the browser Top 5:

01 Internet Explorer--72.15% (73.02%)
02 Firefox--19.73 (19.22)
03 Safari--6.37 (6.14)
04 Opera--0.74 (0.69)
05 Netscape--0.72 (0.69)

Nevertheless, Firefox, Safari, Opera and moribund Netscape all added share last month at the expense of Internet Explorer.
