Wikipedia must be one of the largest websites in existence today. It is an online encyclopedia in which registered users can edit pages themselves, although it is moderated by a large groups of volunteers, each responsible for a section or subject.
At the last count it contained over 340,000,000 pages! Anything you need to know, you can be fairly sure to find it on Wikipedia.
Keywords on pages link through to other pages so you can browse the site for hours without performing a search at all.
Time has put together their best 50 websites.
Surprisingly some very big names are missing, and less well-known names have made it on to the list. Bear in mind this list is written in the US, but even so, the web is very much a worldwide entity.
For example, in the social media category there is no Facebook or Twitter, but a much smaller site called Foodspotting has been nominated. Foodspotting lets users upload reviews and photos of restaurants as they sample their wares. The site uses the geographical awareness of Gowalla.
There is no YouTube in the video category, but an unfamiliar site called Labuat has been listed and described as ‘captivating’ and ‘mesmerising’. Labuat lets you paint to music, it has to be tried to be fully understood.
Other categories include shopping, finance, sports and health. View the whole article at Time.
