Much of Europe is still mired in a financial crisis, but that hasn't slowed down traffic on banking websites. According to a recent report, nearly 40% of Europeans accessed banking websites during December.
Figures released by comScore reveal that 38.7 percent of Europeans who went online during December of 2011 visited a banking website. The numbers also show that people in Northern Europe were more likely to visit banking websites, with Netherlands leading the pack. 66.3 percent of Dutch internet users accessed online banking services during the period, followed by 59.9 percent of French internet users and 55.9 percent of Swedes.
Across the entire continent, the banking website visited most frequently was ING, based in the Netherlands, which garnered 11.2 million unique visits during the month.
ING was in headlines during the month of February, when it was revealed that US ING Direct accounts would likely get a name change in 2013, due to Capital One's takeover.
