http://mywebsearch.com/ <- dead site
Above is just a sample of sites which have very large logos, and I think they should not, because they are either dead, or can't be possibly as popular as say, the BBC site.
Other then that, it looks like it's time to start learning Mandarin, from the looks of it it's quickly becoming the number 2 language on the web. I got English (1) and Russian (3) covered :)
Just a few icons away from news.ycombinator.com is incest-dream.com - don't go there! There are plenty of other porn sites surrounding the Hacker News favicon, call me naive, but I didn't think there was that much porn out there on the interwebs these days. Someone told me it was hard to monetize because you cannot compete with free. Plus you don't get a screen full of pop-ups of porn, 1998 style. Seems I will have to re-evaluate what the internet is used for.
Enjoy your "evaluating."
But I guess what the best measurement would be is subjective anyway, plus it's not so easy to measure anything like "amount of time spent doing X" or "number of people doing Y". Alternatively it's a valid opinion to have that bandwidth is the best metric, it's just not my opinion.
The fact that non-adult streaming video has surpassed adult streaming video (in terms of bandwidth used) is interesting because it means that the Internet is now a mainstream distribution channel for mainstream video.
Anyway, Slashdot's icon is still bigger than ycombinator.com's. :)
* YahooJapan: (down arrow) 1.5 to 3.5%
* Microsoft: (down arrow) 1.2 to 3.4%
* LiveJasmin: (down arrow) 1.2 to 2.0%
e.g. 1.5 to 3.5% means it dropped 1.5% from 5.0% to 3.5%
