Reuters claims that, according to the web analytics firm StatCounter Opera’s browsers were used more than iPhone’s Safari in May. Turns out that 24.6% of the web pages downloaded last month, were accessed using an Opera Browser, compared to the 22.3% using Safari.
Opera has the huge advantage of being pushed forward by numerous carriers and handset makers, while Safari is only present on the iPhone and iPhone 3G, making the duel uneven. Nokia comes in third, holding 17.9% of the market and you should know that the StatCounter report was based on about 4 billion web pages, all loaded in May.
