TUAW has long agreed that Safari support is not optional
, and MacDailyNews is reporting
that Apple's baby browser is continuing its market share march
and has snagged 3.21% - up 46% from its 2.20 share in August of '05. However, MDN also notes that, from analyzing the data from NetApplications
, it appears most of Safari's growth happened during 2005's holiday season, from about September to December of '05. In fact, Safari actually peaked this year in April with 3.30%, which could be attributed to anything - dropping Safari for Firefox being the most likely, since a lot of switchers probably use Windows/Firefox-heavy sites that might not play well with Safari - yet.
Either way, (as a reminder) this represents a strong upward trend of Safari use, which is also a strong indication of Mac use, since the browser is Mac OS X-only (well, mostly
). March on Safari, march on.
