Apple has 98 percent share of tablet-based Web browsing According to a new report, the iPad accounts for 98 percent of all Web traffic originating from tablets.
Going even further, the tablet accounts for 54.5 percent of all traffic coming from mobile devices, in general.

Onswipe, a developer that helps websites create better "touch friendly" experiences without requiring downloadable apps, says the iPad accounted for 98.1 percent of the 29.5 million unique impressions it saw from over 1200 sites last week.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab line followed at 1.53 percent, with the Xoom, Kindle Fire and Asus Transformers accounting for a total of just 0.38 percent.

The figures make sense given Apple's majority share of the tablet hardware market itself, said to be around 68 percent as of the last quarter.
