Yahoo! sits unassailed at the top of the table with Freeserve and
its close rivals AOL and MSN grouped together someway behind. But,
remember, this is the search engine market we are looking at and not the
internet service provider sector where Freeserve would come out on top.
The table is also waiting for figures from AltaVista which has decided
not to release its web traffic figures, audited or otherwise, at this
time. But with the recent interest in its free internet service, it
should displace one of the players in the table.
