London: Four o’clock on a Wednesday afternoon is the time when workplace skivers do most shopping on the Internet.

Researchers found millions go online to escape work pressures as post-lunch fatigue sets in and the end of the week edges closer.

Activity surges by 75 percent compared to other times, says a study by web shopping tool InvisibleHand.

“Browsing online offers light relief,” a news daily quoted InvisibleHand’s Robin Landy as saying.
