To get an idea on how much such a small percentage of the total websites dominate look at The Internet Map.”

    Jawa thanks, clipped and added two charts to the OP. Notice, the patterns of growth and dominance. I suspect, you slice off the top 1/10 of 1% and you see the “old” net still there. But people depend on the new esp Google [90% of all searches, next nearest Bing at 2%] to reach the old. Unless they keep their own bookmarks. If we are to address a battle we need to map the terrain. KF
