According to a recent study, surfing the net has now become a mainstream activity for the British public. Apparently young women have taken over from young men as the main internet users in the U.K, whilst men over 50 are the largest male group who surf online. Surfing the net is certainly addictive, with e-mail being a popular form of communication. When my computer went down recently, I was lost without it. How did we ever manage without all this technology!
