Who leads in webshare, iOS or Android?

Even though Android outsold iOS in both smartphones and tablets last year, data show that when it comes to web browsing, iOS has a 35% lead over Google's open source OS; since November, the web share for iOS is up 12% versus a decline for Android in the same amount and this trend started in October around the launch of the Apple iPhone 5 and the Apple iPad mini...

This article is so BS. Not only does Android have about a hundred different browsers for people to choose from, but the Android browser even shows up as Safari on many sites. Also, the stock Android browser isn't present on the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 or Nexus 10 devices. The only reason why the stock Android browser is still present on some devices running 4.1-4.2 is because the OEM wanted it there themselves, like Samsung with the S3 and Note 2 and HTC with their devices. Google wants Chrome on all devices going forward with Jellybean. They just don't enforce it.

Again..pointless article, phone arena. Bottom line...there are more people around the world using Android, more than iOS. End of story.
