Safari's Browser Share Tops 5% for the First Time

Apple's Safari web browser has topped 5% of total market share for the first time, reports Net Applications.

Safari accounted for 5.02% of global browser usage for September, notes AllThingsD.

The Mac itself now accounts for 6.45 percent of Web access worldwide, rising from just over 6 percent in August (the first time that Apple's computers had accounted for that level of Web usage). Apple typically gains in September, Net Applications said, pointing out it marks the start of the back-to-school season.

Apple's operating system market share has reached 13.7% in the U.S; however, Windows still accounts for 92 percent of the global desktop market.

The most popular browser was still Internet Explorer with 54% of the market, followed by Firefox with 22% and Chrome with 16%. Despite making significant improvements to their browser, IE has dropped in popularity for the seventh month in a row.
