Atlas of Cyberspace (Archive)
What does the Internet look like? This site provides visual images of networks, providing some pictures of what parts of the Internet look like. Very, very cool.
This site archives more than 90 web browsers (some that no longer exist otherwise). Use this site to test the Internet code you develop. Does your code work with Netscape Navigator? How about Safari, Galahad and Mosaic? Fun for the current developer and those who have used the Internet from its very beginnings.
There are tons of HTML help sites on the Internet, but this one is the one that this webmaster likes. The site provides information from the most basic to advanced, all in easy to understand language. The search engine for the site could be improved, but you can usually find the information that you need despite it's problems.
Internet Standards Archive
This site provides a searchable archive for RFCs (Request for Comment) from the Internet Architecture Board. RFCs are posted and then people are allowed to comment on the internet architecture that is proposed. While there may not be anyone controlling the content that is on the Internet, RFC are how the architecture of the Internet is standardized. Warning: RFCs are very dry and technical!
The NetLingo Dictionary of Internet Words "contains definitions of hundreds of words that are emerging as a new vocabulary surrounding the technology and community of the Internet and the World Wide Web."
Web Developer's Virtual Library
This site provides information on all aspects of web development: programming, design, and graphics. It is important to consider all elements when designing pages for the web.
