Understanding the development and growth of the Internet is critical in ensuring its desirable properties. Researchers from Chinese Institute for Computers concluded that Internet grows according to a variation of Moore's law. The number of Internet sites, according to their calculations, will double by every 5.32 years.

The study is published in the scientific journal New Journal of Physics, and consisted of six-month evaluation collected between 2001 and 2006 year. Besides the conclusion that it monitors Moore's law, there is the knowledge about the evolution of the Internet.

Instead of watching the internet as a collection of Web pages, scientists have observed it as knots of which each represents the autonomous system. The core of the Internet is made of only 0.3% of the total number of knots, and is relatively stable, while the majority of activities separated in the peripheral areas where new nodes occur every day.

The conclusion of this research is significant because other studies predicted that the core of the Internet and its environment must grow parallel and with the same evolutionary mechanism.
