Browser and OS Market Share Trends in the Mobile Age

OS market share worldwide

Saw this over on Daring Fireball.

Windows has lost a lot of market share over the last decade, very clearly to mobile (Android & iOS).

The US chart was interesting as well, so I decided to check out Canada’s:

OS market share in Canada

Pretty similar to the US chart in that iOS has greater market share than Android (vs the global numbers). You can also clearly see iOS’s market share increasing while Android’s is decreasing. iOS is clearly the preferred mobile OS in North America. However, in every other region, Android is the dominant operating system.

Interesting stuff. Growing up in the 80s and 90s Windows was always the dominant OS. Mobile has changed everything!
