Despite a lengthy shakeout that has thinned the ranks of e-tailers, consumers still face
a dizzying array of choices when deciding where to shop online. But the market is already
starting to become better defined. Some categories -- such as online toys, where Toysrus.com
has broken out of the pack -- have seen clear winners emerge. At the same time, however,
brick-and-mortar retailers continue to belatedly muscle onto the scene, armed with name
recognition and the multichannel experience that more and more consumers are seeking.

Consumers have had a tremendous number of choices for many years now. There is nothing special about having 1, 2 or 2 million online stores to choose from.
Branding and the associated shopping experiences will help consumers make choices.
