The weather, recipes – and spelling are among the most searched-for topics on the internet, a poll has revealed.
A poll of 2,000 adults found 17 per cent regularly turn online to nail the spelling of a tricky word, while a fifth are usually hunting for directions.
Other top search terms include song lyrics, music playlists, and even, a year into the pandemic, how to make banana bread.
The survey, commissioned by Sky Q, a TV and entertainment subscription service, also revealed people in the UK spend an hour and three quarters everyday hunting for things online – be it an answer to a question or trying to find something to stream on TV.
This equates to a staggering equivalent of 26 days every single year, hunting around on the internet.
