NetMarketShare's numbers in that link are very much at odds to other web stat counters with more sites, page counting, no weighting by country, etc. E.g., W3 Schools or StatCounter:
Among other differences, NetMarketShare only looks at 40,000 websites, and they only count each visitor once a day. Meaning that if one visitor saw one page on a website, and another viewed 100 pages on that website, they count the same. In other words, it doesn't actually tell us web usage, only # of sites visited.
Counters like StatCounter track over 3 million websites, and count each page view, giving far more of a web usage view. (The downside of that is it would also overcount browsers that tend to reload pages inside a website.)
