Time Lists 50 Best Websites

Time has released its annual “50 Best Websites” list for your enjoyment. As Harry McCraken notes, don’t expect typical sites to be included.

“You’re probably already aware that Google, Amazon and Twitter are worth checking out,” explains McCraken. “So as usual, most of the sites on our 50 Best Websites list aren’t yet household names. They’re ones we Time editors find to be useful, entertaining, innovative or just plain addictive — and, in some cases, all of the above.”

Below are a few of the sites included. The full list is here.

  • BuzzFeed
  • Songza
  • Cowbird
  • FishbowlNY*
  • Uncrate
  • The Verge
* — Not actually listed but totally should be.
