Web users now have almost 76 million sites to choose from, yet most only visit six on a regular basis, it was revealed today.

The research, published today by Directgov, points to a new era in the use of the internet that experts are calling the 'Supersite' phenomenon. The study found that half of internet-using Britons (51 per cent) visit just six or less sites on a regular basis.

Three quarters of people questioned say the internet is indispensable to their daily lives and more than nine out of ten (95 per cent) say they go online with a specific destination in mind. People are now using the internet more smartly, visiting a handful of destination websites that have emerged as 'Supersites' due to their importance to people's lives.

I can totally see this being the case. Seems like most people don't keep an extensive list of bookmarks and sort of impulsively navigate to whatever site is fresh in mind.
