The Top 100 Web Sites of 2009

Posted by Hassan Saif on December 27, 2009

Our picks for the hottest Web sites and Web trends of the year, plus some old favorites to enjoy.

It’s been a strange year on the Web. In the 12 months since our last installment of Top 100 Web Sites, I’m betting you signed up for a Twitter account (and likely abandoned it), browsed the Web on a mobile phone (if you haven’t yet, you soon will), and read 3.4 online news stories about Michael Jackson and watched 5.8 MJ videos on YouTube (I like this one).

In other words, some things about the Web are changing incredibly fast, others seem like they’ll stay the same forever. Our list of the Top 100 Web Sites reflects that: We’ve selected 50 classic Web sites that we all know and love, and 50 new and/or undiscovered sites that you may not have heard of yet.

Deciding upon our list of 100 sites is a months-long process. We solicited Web site nominations from every corner of the Web—PCMag and AppScout readers, Twitter followers, Facebook friends, our own staff, and more. A small committee of our own experts then evaluated each nominated site one by one, judging it according to its content quality, design, and originality, to arrive at our two lists of 50 Web sites.

We hope you’ll enjoy these sites .
