    Net users bypass browser
    http://news.zdnet.co.uk/software/developer/0,39020387,39118843,00.htm

    Most people accessing the Internet do so via media players
    and instant-messaging applications, according to new figures

    The Web may have popularised the Internet, but most users now
    connect to the Net using non-browser applications, according
    to figures released this week.

    Media players and instant-messaging applications are now by far
    the most popular Internet applications, dwarfing the Web browser,
    according to December figures from Nielsen//NetRatings released on
    Tuesday. Seventy-six percent of active Internet users access the
    Net using a non-browser application.

    The Internet is increasingly working its way into applications
    outside the browser, blurring the lines between the desktop and
    the online world, according to Nielsen//NetRatings. "With 76 percent
    of Web surfers using Internet applications, functionality has grown
    beyond the browser to become a fundamental piece of the overall desktop,"
    said Nielsen//NetRatings analyst Abha Bhagat, in a statement.

    The most popular application in December was Windows Media Player,
    reaching 34 percent of Internet users; AOL Instant Messenger, reaching
    20.27 percent; RealNetworks' players, reaching 19.76 percent;
    MSN Messenger, reaching 19.31 percent; and Yahoo Messenger,
    reaching 12.26 percent.
