All My Faves is a site that attempts to collect and organize the best sites on the world wide web. There are many topics such as email, video, maps news and "weekly faves". Or, one can sort by categories such as education, shopping, travel, etc.
The website does not tell you who is gathering the sites, criteria for "best" and how the decisions are made, but it is an interesting collection and demonstrates how many options are available.
