Opera, the most widely used web browser in feature phones has been beaten for the first time from its throne as the top mobile browser.
The Android web browser that is seen to have a rapid growth since its inception a couple of years ago has broken another record — this time leading Opera in the list of StatCounter’s Global Stats. From the most recent monthly report (February, 2012), Android browser accounts 22.67% of the market share, beating out Opera at 21.7%. Apple mobile Safari browser captured the third place; however, StatCounter accounts the iPhone and iPod Touch browsers separately. If combined, these devices could push Safari to the top spot accounting 25.36% of the market share.
