Akamai: mobile Safari top browser on all networks for Q3
Let's look at the top five mobile browsers with the largest percentage of requests over cellular in the third quarter. The Android WebKit browser led with 37.6% of the requests followed by the 35.7% share owned by mobile Safari. Opera Mini was next with 20%, followed by the BlackBerry Browser and the mobile version of IE for Microsoft which had shares of 4.2% and 1.5% respectively.
When looking at all networks, not just cellular, the top four was led by mobile Safari with a 60.1% share, followed by the 23.1% usage owned by the Android WebKit browser. Mobile IE had a 9.3% share while Opera Mini came in at just under 5%

I prefer Firefox on pc, (and always be),
but when it comes to mobile, android browser is much much better (thanks to Sense auto text arrangements), however, I'm very surprised that internet explorer managed to done well on mobile texting, because word recognition is very accurate on wp keyboard, I love it too...
I dunno the hype of chrome, I can't save the page that I wanna read in chrome tho... Whereas safari? As same as android browser, but lack of recognition, but very accurate on typing, eventhough the iphone screen is very small lol
opera? Good... On Symbian at least :D

Chrome is too slow and chuncky. Lags a ton. Firefox is so smooth, but it loads pages a little slow.
For right now, I'm just using the Stock ICS browser.
I also agree with the typing. Apple really has a great keyboard on their phones. It is surprisingly easy to type on, even with the smal screens.
