The personal website of Chris Coyier

The Web’s Big Dogs

The Washington Post has posted a table showing the biggest 50 websites, as judged by total unique visitors, compared from February 2005 to February 2006. I hear fairly often that MySpace is the most visited site on the internet, well, it’s not, yet anyway. It has shown the craziest jump in the one year span, showing over 300% growth in one year. Topping the list, Yahoo! at 115 million visitors in Feb. 06, with a full 25% lead over Google, it’s nearest competitor.
