Remarkable is the big drop in Japanese pages (-37%) and Korean pages (-23%), although the total grew with almost 119 million pages. Big winners in the top-10 are the French (+65%), Spanish (+58%), German (+38%) and Dutch (+37%) pages. Strange is the fact that the number of Catalan pages grew with 954%.

So who wins per capita? (disregarding English as general internet language..)

(Is it Danish, then Dutch? ;))
