The version of this image that shows up here misses a comparison pie-chart with different numbers, so click the link. The fact that different measurement methods yield such wildly divergent results is certainly interesting (Safari's share is 36% ... or 66%?), but the most interesting thing is that share for WebKit browsers (Safari, Palm's Pre, Google's Android/Chrome, RIMM's Blackberry, Nokia's Symbian S60; more discussion here) seems to be taking over the world in mobile browsers just as predicted. Aside from Opera, which has a significant installed base, is there a serious competitor for mobile browser engine share? It seems a bit like the original America's cup in 1851. You know:
Queen: And who is second?
Attendant: Your majesty, there is no second.
-- interview with Stuart Alexander (alternate version recounted here)
Microsoft may have committed to delivering quality products in the future, but at least with WebKit it's the case that the rest of the world is already delivering. With Windows Mobile an apparent marketplace failure in the segment of phones capable of delivering a usable browsing experience (and WinMo suffering non-Microsoft browser competition), and mobile devices exploding at a rate not seen this century in desktops, it seems WebKit's star is on the rise. Meanwhile, Firefox gains steadily against Internet Explorer in the desktop space.
Who's got the rounding error?
