Publish date:

The Apple iPhone is now the fourth most popular web browsing platform in the world, behind only Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

According to figures from market analyst Net Applications, at its peak on August 23rd the iPhone accounted for 0.48 per cent of all web hits. Over all in August it claimed 0.30 per cent of total web users – a stat which in itself doesn’t sound ground breaking, but in the context of a mobile phone is unprecedented.

To put it another way, the iPhone accounted for one in every 333 page hits during August.
