March 24th, 2006 | by Klaus Holzapfel |

Number of Internet Users
The number of Internet users surpassed one billion in 2005 — up from only 45 million in 1995 and 420 million in 2000. While the U.S. continues to lead with nearly 200 million Internet users at the end of 2005, China and India are now in second and fourth place among Internet users. The two billion Internet users milestone is expected to be touched by 2011. Source: Silicon India

MySpace Rises As New Online Star
The Internet has a rising star whose name isn’t Google. Just over 2 years old, MySpace now has 2 1/2 times the traffic of Google Inc., and it quickly eclipsed Friendster as the top social-networking site.
