It seems not. Some sites have a skew towards certain browser(s) depending on the demographic of the visitors.
In our analytic, webkit (safari, chrome), accounts for about 38% of our visitors. Tirdent (ie), about 42%.
When looking at visitors from google, webkit accounts for about 51% of visitors.
I get up to 80% Safari and iOS in season. Most of my traffic is mobile.
Safari is performing quite well these days. For my hobby site:
For Safari itself the breakdown is
I'd consider the site a desktop and tablet site, but it does support mobile reasonably well (sort of always I'm settling on 240 pixels (with auto width) for the classic "thumbnail" image size. I've got a nice Analytics event anytime the content overflows the viewport
Is that Safari = Safari or Safari = webkit (where the UA string will contain the word "Safari" even if it's Chrome-- and will say both "Safari" and "Chrome" if it's Opera)?
I can't be bothered to check again, last time this question came up a couple of months ago it was a pretty even split between the big 4
Yes this is pretty typical. I'd say mobile skews Safari and Chrome heavily based on Android and Apple having a near monopoly on the space.
Depends on the industry. I have a site as low as 15-20% and another at 50%.

That's kind of the weird thing:
The site is half ecommerce, half article pages (on a word press blog)
The ecommerce site is NOT responsive (been pretty much the same since late 2009).
The blog is html 4 wordpress (both blog and ecommerce are on same domain) and was formerly NOT responsive either, but I switched the BLOG to a responsive theme in mid-April.
But neither the content on the ecommerce pages nor on the blog reallys seems like it would particularly appeal to the iphone generation. It's for a somewhat more mature audience, I would imagine.
Oddly enough, the blog re-gained about 2/3rds of its traffic after the May 28th panda 4.0 update. I can't help but wonder if the change to a responsive blog theme had anything to do with that.

Oi! Some grownups have tablets too. I take mine to bed with me.* Are your iOS visitors predominantly iPhone or predominatly iPad? (OK, theoretically also iPod, but who uses their iPod as a browser?) If your analytics doesn't say, change your analytics ;)
* I have fallen asleep to the same episode of People's Court eight times in a row. To this day I don't know whose fault the accident was.
Firstly, I have to say that watching reruns of The Peoples Court on a mobile device is the the second greatest advancement in technology known to mankind, only behind funny cat videos.
% of total mobile devices:
(not set) 5.5%
The rest are mostly Android devices with the occasional nokia windows thrown in there as well.

It was Jerry's fault. It's always Jerry's fault.
