Millions of Brits are surfing the web aimlessly, losing an average of two full working days per month.
The research, carried out by YouGov over 2,412 adults, and commissioned by Moneysupermarket.com, found that more than two thirds of the UK's 33.7 million internet users are guilty of "wilfing" (What Was I Looking For?).
The survey revealed that almost a quarter of the country's internet users spend 30 per cent or more of their internet time wilfing, both at work and at home.
Although men are much more likely to be tempted to wilf than women, shopping websites were found to be the biggest cause of wilfing, the survey found.
Worryingly, a third of male respondents admitted that wilfing has had negatively affected their relationship with their partner, with almost one in five men being distracted by porn websites.
