iOS passes Linux to become 3rd most popular browsing platform

“It’s a mobile device,” they say. “But it’s not meant for surfing the internet,” they say. “Apple’s apps are ruining the web,” they say. Android users have said each and every one of these thing in the comments here on the site.

Well folks, this non-competitive, internet destroyer of a technology known as iOS just passed Linux as the third most used internet browsing platform. We’re not big on block quotes around here, but Vince Vizzaccaro, Net Applications vice president, had this to say about iOS, “It’s something to take note of when a mobile operating system passes something that’s been around forever…Whatever the sales are, we’re seeing iOS totally dominate the market on the Web,” Vizzaccaro said. “iOS has nearly a 6:1 advantage over Android.”

He’s bang on if you ask us, iOS has exploded, and it’s already overtaken a traditional operating system. Android’s got its work cut out for them if they’re going to over take the iPhone and iPad, and they better be in it for the long haul because it’s going to take awhile before they catch up with the iPhone.
