  |  February 11, 2004   |  Comments

Nielsen//NetRatings examined the surfing habits of users during December 2003.

Switzerland's Internet users spent the most time surfing the Web at home during December 2003, but only by a narrow margin over the Netherlands. Sporting nearly identical active Internet user penetration rates, Switzerland and the Netherlands were closely matched in other usage measurements too, such as sessions per person, domains visited, and duration of Web page viewed. Sweden has the highest penetration rate, with three-quarters of the Internet population qualifying as active users.
