Of the top 100 most visited sites by Web surfers in the UAE in July, only six are Middle East-focused.

The top 100 list, compiled by Alexa Research, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, reveals that local Internet users spend more time browsing global sites like MSN and Yahoo, than local sites.

The six local sites that made the grade were: Emirates.net.ae (Etisalat’s ISP site); Education.gov.ae; Maktoob.com; Arabia.com; UAEmall.net and ITParabia.com.

The top three international sites were MSN.com, Yahoo.com and ICQ.comYahoo.
