Apple's Safari is the No.1 mobile/tablet browser

Apple's Safari dominates worldwide mobile/tablet browser market share according to the latest data published by web analytics firm NetApplications.

Safari, the default browser on all devices running Apple's iOS powers 52.99 percent of mobile browsing as of August 2011, more than double its nearest competitor, Opera Mini, at 20.77 percent. Google's Android browser follows at 15.73 percent, trailed by Symbian (5.83 percent), BlackBerry (2.90 percent) and Opera Mobile (0.58 percent).

Although Android far outpaces iOS in regards to worldwide smartphone market share, controlling 48 percent of the global market compared to iOS's 19 percent according to Canalys data published last month, NetApplications' research examines both smartphone and tablet web activity, giving Apple a major edge.
