Mobile Browser Traffic on the Rise

The wave of global web traffic accessed by mobile devices has begun to surge.

Several data points noting the growing wave of mobile browser usage, notably:

  • Mobile phones account for 17% of global web usage, Aug. 2013, StatCounter
  • U.S. mobile internet usage has doubled between 2009 and 2013, going from one-third to two thirds of cell-phone owning Americans, according to the Pew Internet and American Life Project. (Moreover, according to Pew, mobile is a primary way to access the Internet for 21% of users.)

Desktop vs Mobile Browser Usage – Jan 2013 – Jan 2014

Several statistics of worldwide internet usage gathered by StatCounter and others continue to point to the continued dominance of desktop traffic. For example, according to StatCounter, desktop usage still dominates internet usage at 76.1% as of December 2013. However, the trend towards mobile internet access is growing in speed and volume. In particular, access to the internet by tablets is dominated by Apple with 74.5% of all tablet activity, according to StatCounter. However, the perception that tablets are themselves overtaking PCs and desktops is in part based on individual biases and personal access habits. In fact, according to StatCounter, only 5% of all Internet usage is access via a tablet.
