Mobile browser stats for September

It’s time for the mobile browser stats for September; as always according to StatCounter. Like last month, only two points changed hands but they’re important ones: Safari jumps back to second position, stealing one point each from Nokia and BlackBerry.

Your donation for keeping this series up and running would be much appreciated.

So Safari can still conquer market share from the other browsers. Android, in contrast, has come to a complete standstill. Its growth has been slowing for the entire year, but this is the first month ever that the Android browser does not grow its market share at all.

The race has changed again: there’s now a three-way struggle between Opera, Safari, and Android for the top slot, while Nokia and especially BlackBerry have to content themselves with a distinctly lower position. The difference between Opera and BlackBerry has grown by one point to 11%.
