Naturally, monster search engine Google dominated the list, but there were exceptions in some countries with Kazakhstan, Georgia, Cambodia and Algeria boasting YouTube as their most visited website.

In Russia, however, it is social media site VK which is the most visited, a result which may be influenced by the censorship laws in effect under Vladimir Putin.

China's favourite site is the search engine Baidu, while funnily, Malta's is their online newspaper, the Times of Malta.

But what about Ireland, well we're slaves to conformity and we lump ourselves in with the majority of other countries by using Google the most often.
