Note: This list is not the same thing as Top Ten Best Websites so don't merge it with that. This list is about the websites that are the most useful to us for whatever reasons that may be.

The Top Ten

1 Wikipedia

Contrary to popular belief, Wikipedia is actually quite accurate (citation needed) and offers plenty of information about said result. It saved my life when I was in secondary school and will through college as well I hope. The layout is clean and simple and it works for the massive amount of information that some articles have. I recommend it to anyone. - Cazaam

Although people always say that it's inaccurate, I agree with Cazamm on how it is very accurate. They provide the information sources they used for every bit of information. Scroll down and see all the citations if you want proof about something you read on Wikipedia that you think might be questionable. I've used it for years and it's helpful with basically anything. - ephemera

Wikipedia is an amazing website. Even though even guests can edit, any vandalism is reverted within an hour over 98% of the time. It's professionally made, there are almost no bullies, and all in all, it has loads of info

WIKIPEDIA for the win

2 TripAdvisor

Ever thought of planning a holiday abroad or going to a restaurant in the city or even a tour around some caves? TripAdvisor's got you covered. With a large community and helpful opinionated reviews from the general public you can avoid a disastrous trip away from home Me and my dad use TripAdvisor before going to any hotel, restaurant etc. It has yet to let me or my family down. Before using TripAdvisor, me and my dad went to a horrible hotel that advertised itself as a 4 star. Now thanks to TripAdvisor I've been to 2 star hotels that feel as good as the usual 4 star ones. - Cazaam

3 Google Maps

This website helped my mom find a specific building 7/10

So you've used TripAdvisor to plan your holiday, now time to locate things around your hotel with Google maps. Google Maps comes with Street View so you can see exactly what is on the road you're on and you can search for specific amenities around a specific area by typing (amenity) in (city) eg. Schools in London. The possibilities are endless with Google Maps. - Cazaam

Visit Website

So you're doing a survey for a business or you may just be playing around with it. The site can help find the clients you're going to survey or who's going first in your game of hide and seek via a virtual coin toss. There are many other simulations to shuffling cards and rolling dice to raffle drawing and generating a password for your new account on a website. All the services mentioned above are free but there is some premium content for paying users. - Cazaam

5 YouTube YouTube is a global video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California, United States. The service was created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005. In November 2006, it was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion.

YouTube has not only funny and fun stuff, but medical stuff too and stuff you need to know if you're injured or something. - TornadoTemper

It helped me a lot. And still helps. Great website - Irina2932

I'm only picking this one because it's the most well known and people will more likely see your videos.
If you ever want to make videos for the internet, YouTube would be where they most likely end up. - Cazaam

Best website ever

6 Yahoo! Answers

There are some downright stupid questions asked but ignoring all of that, if you have a question that you want to ask the community, you'll sometimes see some sophisticated answers to your question that you asked.
For example: You've got a 13 year old dog. Here's the question you ask: Is my dog going to die soon?
My beagle is about thirteen years old. Lately, she's been peeing in the house (which she never does). She also seems to be losing her sight and hearing. Also, very recently, she's been acting quite playful, which is unusual; she usually sits around most of the day. Every time I see her laying still I'm afraid she's dead. I'm just wondering if there's a good chance that she'd going to die soon.
Sample Top answer: This is such a hard question to answer, you have to be prepared because 13 is over the life expectancy, has she been to the vet since this has been happening? My parent's beagle passed at 14 years and the prior one at 13. She must have a wonderful life and be ...more - Cazaam

Yahoo Answers is the exact opposite of its name.
Besides the fact that many of the questions are irrelevant, the answers are almost always WRONG.
Essentially the answers you get are the same as if you asked any random member of the public walking by and asked them a question on a specific subject; THEY HAVE NO IDEA.
Don't bother asking questions on Yahoo Answers, you are better off knowing nothing than whatever anyone puts on there.

You can ask&answer anything you want.

7 Urban Dictionary

Yes there are a lot of questionable definitions that do come off as edgy, unfunny and quite cringey but if you can get past that then you'll really find some precise definitions of certain words and phrases. It really helped me out when I was looking for certain meanings of words.

This site has the community tell you what different words or phrases mean. A lot of it is to do with intercourse and other rude acts but there is some intelligent stuff on there. This site will help you understand the present day slang and abbreviations that people use... if you don't already. - Cazaam

They give definitions that are simpler and easier to understand.
