For the simple ease of gaining mass information, I use Wikipedia and Google more often than any other sites. My other favorites are travel-related sites of places where I have visited.

I agree with post #3 and use Wikipedia almost everyday. The site can get a "bad rap" from teachers who warn that not all of the information on the site is vetted or source noted, but it is usually accurate and, if nothing else, a great place to start in finding out information on a huge variety of topics. I also use About.com and of course, enotes.com.

Google is, of course, excellent, but so is Google Books (under the "More" tab). The latter allows access to an astonishing amount of information, much of it vetted by peer review. A surprising amount of in-the-book searching can also be done through Amazon.com.

This depends to a huge extent on what you want from a website.  I like espn.com because it gives me access to information about just about any kind of sport in the world (even has a dedicated part on cricket).  I love a Japanese dictionary website run by Monash University in Australia because it's an excellent help in reading the language.  But those are really different things.  I'd say there are many "best" websites.

I would have to agree that there are many great websites. I have specific websites which I depend upon for very specific things. For example, when I feel like laughing, YouTube is the site I always turn to. If I am looking for quotes, I love "ThinkExist." GoogleScholar is a site I use for research. I have to agree that Wikipedia is a site that I visit in order to get me headed in the right direction (while I do tell my students to stay away for the reasons posted above).

Therefore, there really are many sites one could consider the "best."

In my opinion, Google is one of the best websites. I'm no internet expert and I don't have knowledge of every website "in the world," but Google has helped me a lot when it comes to organization and other things. I use Google search to find things quickly, Google Calendar to keep my events and things in line (which is synced to my phone), and Google Docs to keep important documents in one place. I know there are even more aspects of google that I don't even take advantage of, but I probably should!

Enotes, of course!

Other favorites: Ebay (which has revolutionized shopping, and is one of the best examples of Capitalism I can point to) and of course, Craigslist.  I also enjoy websites that play college radio.

These are of course, opinions. What is Best is what is fulfilling the immediate informational or entertainment need at that moment.

Yahoo is the best site on the Web.

Google is simply the best tool on the Web

Amazon is nothing less than a revolution in how the world shops.

About.com breaks up the Web into major subject areas with a volunteer human host for each of them.

Ebay is the world's biggest, longest-running garage sale.
