Stop! Web Time!

EDIT: The Web is _anything in a browser_. If it's not in a browser then it's not the web. If you use a chat client that's browser-based, then that counts. If you use one that's a program, then it doesn't.

The percentage of time that I am at my personal computer that is spent on the web is...

The reason I'm curious is Google's pushing of the Chrome laptops - which are designed to be web only. I know that a lot of my time is spent on the web nowadays, but I'm curious as to what percentage most people spend on it.

(Non-web usages of the computer are either playing non-web games (Dragon Age and Super Meat Boy this week) and watching videos - although that's mostly on Julie's PC, as it's in the bedroom.)

The second question is because there was a big battle over MS Office versus OpenOffice, and I realised that I don't really use Office at home since I stopped sending letters. I still have it (the joy of a brother who works for Microsoft), but I can't see me using it.
