       The opinions of anonymous web surfers are meaningless to me.

       If you can trust google or yahoo to make the judgement for you as what is good, you can definitely use the collective best resources of other users, filtered to delete the crap

       With alexa you have to give the pesonal information which should not be the case.   

       No shareware, no ads, no pop-ups, not collection of website page even, just the best sites given for your topic given to you.   

       May be you can select the topic from Toolbar and get the sites what you want. Resource input can very.

       Ok, we are not defining the best, we are defining the good sites that other people might like ..which you have found and great in your opinion. The quality of the best can vary from person to person.

       At some level, isn't this what blogging is all about? Many blogs (Slashdot being a notable example) are just lists of links that the writer found interesting, followed by a discussion of why. Just find a blog of this type that mirrors some of your interests, and you are all set.

       It has been alexa at first provided related links. But it is rated as data stealer by some adaware programs. When netspeed is slow alexa reduced browsing speed. Stumbleupon provide the best of both worlds, voting and social networking. Sharing of bookmarks is a wonderful experience with stumbleupon.

       Now http://Digg.com has come into limelight and almost created a word in computer dictionary "diggation" but dont provide I dont like it. It is just what we like. If more people like it it comes to front page and it is hot with indicators of how much hot it is. www.reddit.com, www.del.icio.us, www.blinklist.com, www.shadows.com and so many others. Now we are seeing the internet as a social networking place.
