China vaults past USA in Internet users [usatoday.com]

China, already the world leader in cellphone use, has surpassed the USA as the No. 1 nation in Internet users.

The number of Chinese on the Internet hit more than 220 million as of February, according to estimates from official Chinese statistics by the Beijing-based research group BDA China. The government is likely to confirm the leap at its half-yearly report in July.

The longtime Internet leader, the USA, which founded and developed the network of computers, had 216 million users at the end of 2007, according to Nielsen/NetRatings.

That didn't take long [webmasterworld.com]. It had been predicted this would happen eventually.

Inevitable purely through critical mass but who will be the biggest in 10 years, China or India? Asia already has the most by a long way.

Being pedantic surely the EU should rank as #1 at the moment, after all the USA is a union of States and it could easily be argued the same of China whereas Asia is a geographical area...whoa...
