Web browsing can be addictive, whether you’re sitting in front of a computer or using a mobile device. If you’re doing yours on the go with a smartphone or tablet, don’t be shocked – it’s picking up more in popularity than you might think.

A report from StatCounter indicates that the use of mobile web browsers has risen higher than ever, accounting for more than 20 percent of all global browsing for the first time. The chart above shows just how much they’ve picked up with this milestone.

In general, the mobile share of browsing has picked up an approximate 53 percent this year, as back in January, it only accounted for 13 percent of worldwide browsing, according to Computerworld. This has clear implications for makers of browser-based games, among others.

One has to wonder if the trend will continue into 2014. Don’t be surprised if it does.
