There's been a bit of movements in terms of browsers - IE and Firefox re down fraction of a percent, while Chrome and Safari are up a fraction of a percentage point. Nothing spectacular there.

But when it comes to operating systems, there's something interesting.

iOS is making some huge gains. These gains are no doubt driven by the iPad 2 and the Verizon iPhone 4.
