iOS Overtakes Linux as Preferred Browsing Platform

It feels like it was just yesterday when Linux significantly led the way over iOS as the preferred operating system for web browsing. To put it in perspective, as of last November, the usage of Linux was more than double that of iOS.

Currently, browsers running on iOS now account for 1.13 percent of all browser usage, surpassing Linux which has fallen to 0.85 percent.

Pictured to the right is a snapshot from Google Analytics showing traffic to one of my personal websites. The rankings can vary greatly depending on the type of site.

For instance, I suspect that TUAW’s top operating system is not any version of Windows, though I need to verify this.

When will the combined usage of all mobile-only operating systems surpass that of desktop operating systems in this domain?
