Boring online stats

There’s no real purpose to this.

  3. Look up the news 75%
  4. Pay bills 66%
  5. Look up the weather 62%
  6. Visit a brand or product website 62%
  7. Use a price comparison site 60%
  8. Research a product/service before buying 60%
  9. Watch a video clip 55%
  10. Listen to an audio clip 44%
