Browsing youtube, reddit, here, and playing insanaquarium like an idiot.
I would also use facebook and twitter in the extreme cases of boredom.

Write three lines of code in Sublime Text and end up deleting five lines while debugging and the cycle sort of repeats. Aside from my usual routine of developing my own website, I also do several graphic designing which includes sketching (usually spend more time with colouring), UI concepts, among many others. I do browse the internet but I shuffle through loads of websites that it'll take forever to list them. But to get the general idea, it's mostly sites related to development and designing.

Ah, and camping my email every 5 minutes while letting Youtube and Nico Nico Douga feed my boredom.

These days, strictly web browsing really. I don't think I could name one thing outside of Firefox that I ever open on a daily basis.

Primarily, I use my computer for web browsing (and all the tasks that I do on the web), and the next most frequent tasks I use it for are visual media consumption and video gaming (primarily Sim City 4).

Mostly gaming + Web browsing. I'm addicted to my new Rockmelt browser. It really is pretty good.

I don't know what I do half the time or why I have a fascination. But I tend to jump from:
ROM editing in pokemon
Designing in Photoshop
Browsing through PC
Playing Ookami on PCSX2
Studying programming / Japanese

I can't live without the internet but in reality there isn't much for me to do with it besides downloading and researching different things

I use the computer mostly for doing work, some personal tasks like browsing/reading the news and not that often lately, for gaming.

I use the computer mainly for slacking off -- Facebook, Reddit, Anime, News, Games, and nothing productive.

This means that I should probably get off the computer once in a while.

20 years on this planet and I still can't say for certainty that I know what I do when I get on my computer. I sit down, blink, and it's suddenly 3 in the morning.

But seriously, I mainly just use it as a tv since I can always find something that I wanna watch. There are a few small games that I play from time to time (most are visual novels), but 90% of the time is spent watching tv shows.

Video games, discussing video games, tech-things, or talking about technology
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]

I'll do a lot of Twitter, Youtube, PokéCommunity, Tumblr, browsing Serebii and Bulbapedia, searching entertainment websites such as Entertainment Weekly, Skype, iTunes, and Photoshop. On a rare occasion, I'll pop in on Facebook for like a second or two.

If I'm really bored, then I'll go to places like OhNoTheyDidn't and just read comments (I really try not to do that) or I'll go browsing LiveJournal and DeviantArt looking for nice icons or background wallpaper to use at a future time because making my own graphics today is just too hard.

I check my twitter, facebook, and this account every time I log in, plus I check Bleacher Report and any sports website out there to keep myself up to date with the latest in sports.

And I'm always on Youtube. I like listening to my playlist while browsing sites.
