TIME’S 50 Coolest
Websites

Many of this year’s choices are shining examples of Web 2.0:
next-generation sites offering dynamic new ways to inform and entertain, sites
with cutting-edge tools to create, consume, share or discuss all manners of
media, from blog posts to video clips.

TIME’S 25
Sites We Can’t Live Without

From TIME’S finalists from years past, sites that continue
to impress us with new content and features and
deserve a spot on anyone’s must-click list

 

Highlights:

Blogger
The place to go to create your own blog; tools are
powerful and easy to use, and it’s free

Craigslist
This wildly popular portal of classified ads serving more than 300 cities in
the U.S. and
across the globe recently expanded its real estate listings, and helps power HousingMaps
a mash-up that locates properties for sale using Google
Maps. (Craigslist charges
fees to real estate brokers in New York
and for job ads in New York, San
Francisco and Los
Angeles, but is otherwise free.)

Factcheck.org
Picks apart speeches, press releases, TV ads and other
public statements by politicians of all stripes to set the record straight

Flickr
This public showroom for personal pics is one of the
fastest-growing social networks on the Web, and now it has a blog

Google
What started as the Web’s best search engine has become a jack-of-all-trades,
offering all sorts of free applications, from Spreadsheets and Calendar to Picasa (for digital photos) and Gmail. There’s Google Scholar, which lets you search for academic
papers on any topic, and Google Finance (nice charts!); Google
Maps
has inspired countless “mash-ups” including weatherbonk.com. Register for a free account and you can personalize your
home page too. Click here, for
a menu of features and services that have officially launched; go to Google
Labs
for the new stuff that’s still in beta (such as Spreadsheets). The unaffiliated (but lovingly devoted) Googletutor.com has
helpful tips and advice for making the most of all things Google. Read more about some of Google’s latest-greatest features
in the TIME archives.

Lifehacker
Computer-tech tips and tricks to help you save time, and keep you sane; sister-blog Gizmodo gives up all the latest gadget news. Too mainstream for you? Best to
head over to our favorite geek-convention,Slashdot.org

National
Public Radio

Not to miss: NPR podcasts,
NPR music, NPR This I Believe, NPR Stories

Technorati
Blog finder that keeps getting better while the blogosphere gets bigger. Searches are
faster and more accurate, and now you can personalize the home page; a new Discover section
provides a round-up of top posts by topic. Newcomer Sphere is also worth a look.

Wikipedia
A real Web wonder: this massive, collaborative online encyclopedia is written,
edited, and maintained primarily by volunteers; some 1.3 million articles in
English, and millions more in 228 other languages
