Microsoft pinned a lot of hope on Surface. The company fell way behind in mobile, and it hoped its own tablet would spark a monumental comeback. If web usage stats are any indication, though, the tablet's start can be best described as insignificant.
Analytics firm Chitika looked at tens of millions of (North American) tablet ad impressions from November 12-18. The Windows RT Surface barely registered, making up 0.13% of tablet web traffic. That means that out of every 10,000 tablet ad impressions, an average of 13 came from Surface.
Good news: still no reason for a webmaster to look at how IE on a such a machine botches up our sites.
