Safari expands mobile browser share lead despite heated competition

Safari Mobile Browser Share

Apple (AAPL) may be under more competitive pressure than it’s faced in a while but that doesn’t mean its iPhones and iPads aren’t still the dominant devices for browsing the mobile web. The latest numbers from NetMarketShare show that Apple’s Safari browser has actually increased its lead among smartphone and tablet users and now accounts for 62% of mobile web browsing, followed by Google’s (GOOG) Android browser at 22% and Opera Mini at 8%. Safari’s share actually marks a significant increase from the previous month when it accounted for 55% of mobile browsing, so it seems that Apple’s dominance of the mobile web isn’t in danger of shrinking anytime soon.
