StatCounter is out today with its data for February 2017 and highlights that Android is inching closer to passing Windows as the most popular operating system for internet usage worldwide.
The analytics company charts its latest data across desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile, with previous years showing a significant climb in market share for Android at the expense of Windows.
It also remains on top when isolating just the US and Europe markets (followed by iOS at 24.9%), although Android is now at over 50% in Asia where it’s made strong gains recently: In North America Windows (all versions) maintained its lead across all platforms with 40.7% share in February followed by iOS (24.9%) and Android (20.3%).
StatCounter pulls its data from its software that analyzes 15 billion page views per month from 2.5 million+ websites. You can read the full report on its website.
