RNZ Browser and OS stats for Feb 2016

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.
