What Country Has Most Internet Users?


According to comScore and echoed by The Economist, China is the country with most Internet users in the World, accounting for 179.7 million users out of one billion worldwide. The United States of America, until recently the leader, has 163 million users. With a far lower Internet penetration in China than the roughly 50% in the US, we will only see China widening its lead in this chart. Clearly a market not to be neglected.

A good way to enter the year of the Ox that just began.

Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!

    Hi Jose.
    Have you already start to learn some Chinese?

    You might want to take a look at Lingoes, because it has support for Chinese.
    I have just tested and it works fine.
    It has support for Google Chrome but only through the clipboard translator mode.

    That is one of the reasons I still use firefox, though I use Chrome too.

    Very interesting!
    I don’t know if I told you that my piano teacher is Chinese. Well, she married a month or so, and I decided to congratulate her with some Chinese words. I watched a video-blog for the pronunciation and told her:

    Xin Xin Xiang Yin
    Hua Hao Yue Yuan Ye

    Can you translate them?

    I’d like to learn Chinese but I think another hobby does not fit in my life schedule 😉

    By, the way, do you know the Optimus Maximus keyboard? In that, you can put anything on the keys…

    Other day I’ll tell you about my “DIY Das Keyboard”…

    Is it really good? For Chinese translation so far I have used one which I downloaded at http://home.interlecta.com
    The Spanish to English and French to English translations are also good. I can’t say for the others because I haven’t used them.
