NEW YORK — The average person believes websites will become obsolete in the next decade. A recent survey of 2,000 U.S. adults finds that seven in 10 (70%) believe apps are gradually replacing websites. With people relying on their phones for absolutely everything, it’s no surprise more than one in four (26%) think they can go a year without using a standard computer browser.
While 69 percent use their smartphone daily, only 44 percent report using their desktop or laptop with the same frequency. Forty-six percent have even done a full day’s work entirely from their smartphone, and 42 percent have used a mobile device to file a tax return.
