Windows share dips below 90%



By

It's the 1st of December, so that means it's time once again to take a look at Net Application's web usage data as parsed by operating system and browser. This month's report notes several milestones, including the fact that the various flavors of Windows now account for less than 90% of users as measured by the web metrics firms.

No, Microsoft isn't going to be closing shop anytime soon, but their strangle hold on the market is definitely loosening. Thereupon, here's the operating system Top 5 for the month of November with October numbers add at the right for comparison:

Windows—89.62 (90.46%)
Mac OS—8.87 (8.23)
Linux—0.83 (0.71)
iPhone—0.37 (0.33)

Of course, it bears remembering that Net Applications data tends to see-saw a bit from month-to-month. So, although it's likely that Windows users share of online traffic will likely top 90% for December, the overall trend has been up, up, up for Mac OS, Linux, iPhone and the various-n-sundry other operating systems (ie *nix and the gaming platforms).

Also of particular note is the fact that the number of Intel Macs is now nearing three times that of PPC Macs.

Another Southbound milestone notched by a Microsoft product is the fact that folks using Internet Explorer accounted for less than 70% of those measured. Net Applications data also shows that the number of Firefox users and Safari users have reached new highs.

01 Internet Explorer—69.77% (71.27%)
02 Firefox—20.78 (19.97)
03 Safari—7.13 (6.57)
04 Chrome—0.83 (0.74)
05 Opera—0.71 (0.75)

As for Opera and Chrome, these two sub-one-percent also ran browsers have again swapped positions—the second month in a row the data has shifted enough to elevate the other.

Again, it's fairly likely that Internet Explorer will have popped back up above 70% when we report December's data, but the overall trend is obvious—just about everyone except Microsoft is growing in the browser space and that's a good thing™...
