Mobile Internet usage exceeded desktop Internet usage worldwide for the first time in October, according to StatCounter.

Its research arm, StatCounter Global Stats finds that mobile and tablet devices accounted for 51.3% of internet usage worldwide in October compared to 48.7% by desktop.

Despite the worldwide usage numbers, desktop usage is still higher in mature markets such as the United States and United Kingdom.
