NetMarketShare: Mac OS X shares up, Safari, iOS down slightly


According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare (http://www.netmarketshare.com), the market share for Mac OS X, Safari and iOS all rose last month.

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, Mac OS X had 6.39% of the global market share in January compared to 6.36% in February (that's global market share; in the US it's over 10%). Windows remains dominant with 92.05% as of January. That's down from 92.23% in December.According to NetMarketShare, Mac OS X 10.6 ("Snow Leopard") accounted for 2.95% of Apple's share and Mac OS X 10.7 ("Lion") 2.02%. That comes to 3.05% and 2.18%, respectively, for December.

When it comes to browsers, Safari had 4.90% in January. Internet Explorer had 52.96%, Firefox had 20.88% and Chrome had 18.94%. That compares to, respectively, December percentages of 4.97%, 51.87%, 21.83% and 19.11%, respectively, for the browsers.

The iOS's still dominated in January, according to NetMarketShare. It had 53.65%, compared to 19.19% for Java ME, 18.12% for Android, 5.20% for Symbian and 2.59% for Blackberry. That compares to 54.04%, 21.27%, 16.29%, 5.76% and 3.51, respectively, in December.

NetMarketShares' monthly surveys don't measure market share in terms of computer systems sold. Instead they sample data from visitors to some 40,000 web sites operated by their clients. And note that NetMarketShare's numbers don't equate to sales.
