    Mobile phone internet usage has finally overtaken desktop


    It was only a matter of time and itís finally happened; mobile internet usage worldwide has finally surpassed the traditional desktop/PC. The results come via a report from StatCounter, originally reported on via TechChrunch, that states that 51.2 of internet usage in October 2016 was performed via mobile devices compared to just 48.7% from desktop.

    StatCounter CEO, Aodhan Cullen, said of the milestone, ďThis should be a wake up call especially for small businesses, sole traders and professionals to make sure that their websites are mobile friendly. Many older websites are not. Mobile compatibility is increasingly important not just because of growing traffic but because Google favours mobile friendly websites for its mobile search results.Ē

    Does the Tenforums (Eightforums, Sevenforums, etc.,) team have analytics for Desktop vs. Mobile, OS, Browser etc., for visitors over the last year?

    Thanks for that - it seems to reflect mostly search engine robot visits.

    Does this skew the browser results in favour of Chrome? It cannot account for the Safari browser numbers - ~3 million or 6% of visitors - presumably from Macs?
    About 85% visits are from desktops, 1 in 6 visits from a mobile phone, and 1 in 50 from a tablet.
