By Calum MacLeod at USA TODAY:

“China, already the world leader in cellphone use, has surpassed the USA as the No. 1 nation in Internet users.”

The Current tally?

China: 220 million users as of February 2008 (17% of population).
US: 216 million users as of December 2007 (71% of population).

Another fun quote from the article?

“My friends all agree — no Internet, no life,” Sun says. “We use it every day for MSN, and I love playing games like World of Warcraft.” The game is so popular that players can pay companies in China to play in their place so they can continue gaining points.”
