The Independent overtook Mirror Group Digital in March to become the fifth-largest national newspaper website in the UK, according to the latest Audit Bureau of Circulations figures published on Thursday.
Independent.co.uk grew daily unique browsers by 3.4% between February and March to 644,331. Monthly unique browsers grew by 13.33% over the same period to reach 14,528,315.
This was enough to put it ahead of Mirror Group Digital, its national website network that includes Mirror.co.uk, 3am.co.uk and MirrorFootball.co.uk, which reported month-on-month declines in monthly and daily browser numbers.
