Safari, which boasts the largest share of mobile terminals, fell by 1.31 points from the previous month, falling for the third consecutive month. The Android standard browser, Chrome are rising by 0.59 points, 0.76 points respectively, it seems that there is no influence of sales of the new iPhone.
Internet Explorer occupies half of the market in the whole browser combined with mobile terminal and personal computer, and even while browsing of mobile terminal is increasing rapidly at present, it still keeps a share of over 50%. In September of this year, the percentage of mobile terminals accounted for access to the Internet as a whole fell from 13% to 11%. As a result of browsing of mobile terminals decreasing, the use ratio of Internet Explorer on the whole is rising instead.

By the way, the most used OS is Windows 7, the latest Windows 8 sold last year dropped its growth rate in September after sharply expanding its share in August. However, the share of Windows 8 is still growing, and the number of users currently is more than twice that of Windows Vista. It is noteworthy that Windows 8.1 already accounts for about 10 percent of the Windows 8.x user base. That means that there are people who are involved in development and who use it before releasing software.
