DAVOS, Switzerland (AFP) - Struggling Internet giant Yahoo! will see more users accessing its services by mobile in 2014 than classic desktops, chief executive Marissa Mayer said on Wednesday at the Davos World Economic Forum.

"2014 will be the year of the crossover," Ms Mayer said while sitting on a panel regarding the world digital context.

"By the end of this year we will have more mobile users than we have PC traffic. You have to be prepared for that," she said.

In December Yahoo was the most popular online venue visited from US desktop computers and the firm has been under pressure to switch its core of the business to the increasingly crucial world of smartphones.
