Chitika have released some interesting statistics on use of alternative mobile browsers. Their finding was that the significant majority of people use the default browser supplied with their Android or iOS device. For Android 91% used the default browser whilst iOS was lower at 85%.
Whilst the numbers are not particularly surprising in themselves, and Chitika's analysis covers the main points, there was something else that I found interesting in light of my recent mobile browser rundown.
What I find particularly interesting is that there is higher adoption of the alternatives on the platform where there is next to no difference between the stock browser and the alternatives but on the platform where there is both a greater need for an alternative and where the alternatives are the best available there is much lower adoption.
