100 Websites That Shaped the Internet as We Know It

The editors of Gizmodo put together a list of the 100 websites that made the internet what it is today. The 100 sites include the big ones, like Google, YouTube, and Twitter, but also long-gone pioneers like Geocities and Hamsterdance, and some of your favorites like TV Tropes, The Onion, and xkcd. It also includes some awful sites you'd never want to visit. But the list isn't ranking the best sites, just those that made their mark and showed us what the internet could do. Really, where would be be today if we didn't have resources like Wikipedia, Urban Dictionary, and Snopes? Not to mention how we've been dependent on Netflix and Amazon! Read about all 100 at Gizmodo.
