A few times a year I release browser and OS stats for www.radionz.co.nz and The Wireless.
In this February 2016 release we can see that the the Chrome browser is still increasing its market share, and the shift from desktop to mobile continues.
It is no longer good enough to provide a mobile compatible site, or even a mobile friendly one – we need to be making sites where the mobile experience is excellent.
At The Wireless things are very different: Chrome 48%, Safari (in app) 19.58%, Safari 16.27%, Firefox 7.5%, IE 4.3%, Android 1.7%
And at The Wireless, iOS 31.4%, Windows 30.8%, Android 21.6%, Mac 13.6%, Linux .99%, Win Phone 0.55%
In June 2012 mobile was 16% of our traffic. In November 2013 it was 29%. In March 2014 it was 23.4% mobile and 10.8% for tablet, making 34.2%. In September 2014 it was 61.8%, 26.3% mobile and 11.8% for tablet. Feb 2015 it was 55.5% desktop, 32.8% mobile and 11% for tablet.
