iOS Tops Linux

In order to more accurately describe usage share for Apple devices, the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad are now being grouped under their common operating system 'iOS'.  Each of these devices can still be tracked separately using the Operating System Versions report.  When these devices are combined, they have over 1% of global browsing share, which is now higher than Linux.

This change was also made in order to more accurately compare platforms running on multiple devices, like Android vs. iOS vs. Linux.

Internet Explorer 8 Gains While Internet Explorer 6 Dropping Off - Except in China

In August, Internet Explorer 8 gained 1.17% to 32.04% (including compatibility mode and editions), while Internet Explorer 6 share declined 0.87% to 16.99%.  Share of the nearly decade-old Internet Explorer 6 fell below 5% in Europe and is nearing 5% in many developed markets such as U.S., UK and France.  The major holdout for IE6 is China with over 46% share (50.5% if you include editions), which is significantly skewing global share.
