According to the traffic measurements, Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo garnered the most unique visitors in both the UK and Australia, but different interests were reflected in each region. UK users spent more than three times as much time at sites belonging to the Time Warner Network, such as America Online, than Australian Internet surfers. Australians spent time at their federal government's Web site, while UK users logged over two hours on eBay.
