comScore released some data on the world’s most popular web properties. Despite Google (GOOG) doing so many things right with so many services Microsoft (MSFT) still garnered the most visitors in 2006. World web use increased 9%, Google’s visitors grew 13% (with 71% rise in Gmail users), while Microsoft and Yahoo (YHOO) each grew 5%. Like Toyota’s inevitable climb to the top of the auto industry Google will soon be king of the web.
The biggest areas of growth were a combination of old and new with multimedia (YouTube grew 1972%!), community (think MySpace), and e-mail (again Gmail) topping the list.
