    Wow, China more than doubled in two years, impressive. But the numbers are wrong with India, according to this, India has 1.5 billion people, they have closer to 1.1b. So, somebody rounded wrong.

    Trivia of the Day: Greenland is the 1st ranked country in internet penetration.

    Seriously? Or are you joking and I didn`t get it? Cause it only fills about a quarter of my screen.

    Of course I`m legally blind and have a large screen, but still, wouldn`t have thought users had anything less than a 21-inch these days?

    Lionhart, there are those of us young folks who use laptops as our main computers and thus do not have monster screens. For example, my laptop has a 17" screen and I could still only see about half of the image at once. It`s not so much a question of how advanced your technology is, just a matter of what you prefer and use.

    Come on, you people complaining about Canada and Australia being missing - the chart is the nations with the largest populations online. That is why China and India, the nations with the biggest populations, are included, but not Indonesia, who have a huge population but don`t have a lot of internet users. So, I am sorry to say that Australia and Canada simply do not have a large enough population to be included here

    "The Brazil percent seems to be wrong, it has a higher number than both India and Germany, but a lower percent of the world."

    Noticed that, too, but it could be simply a higher number of users but using less total bandwidth. It makes sense to me that fewer users in India would be hosting more traffic, for example, than more users in Brazil

    some of this doesnt sum up:
    4% india = 60,000,000
    100%/4% = 25
    25 * 60,000,000 = 1,500,000,000
    actual pouplation of india as of 2009 = 1,166,079,217(gotta love cia factbooks accuracy xD)
    so either A LOT of people died between 2008 and 2009 or they just drated up their calculations...noobs
    why the drat did i care? i know not! and therefore i do not expect you to care :)
