Back in the motherland
I was just wondering what everyone browses on a regular basis. So just list your 5 most visited websites, here are mine.

1. MacRumors (of course :D)
2. MacTechNews.de (German aggregation of all tech news, really substancial)
3. Engadet.com (news about all the little gadgets we'd like to have)
4. Sport1.de (German international sports news, free site with lots of info)
5. BBC News (I read more on paper but this gets visited quite often as well)

Edit: Added some more explanations.

Well, pretty much in this order:
  • MacRumors - the obvious one.
  • Google - yep, another obvious one.
  • Supercars.net - a great site fore keeping up with some very cool cars.
  • News.com.au - Australia's local news site, although it's really pretty limited since it's a News Limited company. There are quite a few gaps. :(
  • Apple Store - it's nice to spec up the dream Power Mac every now and then.

I'll play...

1. BBC News – it's currently set as my homepage as I like to keep up-to-date with current affairs!
2. There's this quite interesting little site... something to do with computers.
3. Hull City – keeping up on summer transfer news.
4. The Iconfactory – I like using custom icons on my Mac and this is my favourite place to find them.
5. And finally The Fortean Times – for my regular dose of weird stuff.

Hehehe :D, there are a few that probably shouldn't be listed for questionable content or questionable motives....

Here are mine I guess, best guess really as surfing is kind of moody for me:
1. Google (homepage)
2. MacRumors
3. IGMI Forum (friends forum, bunch of school friends keeping in touch on off terms)
4. My Site, mostly for blog updates and reading comments
5. Apple.com (spec systems in store, browsing and dreaming mostly)

The forums here at MacRumors, of course... :rolleyes:

I lend lots of music CD, DVDs, audio book CDs, books and comic books at my "local" public library (English info page)

[Deleted]

I visit Astronomy Picture of the Day most days.

It doesn't go very long between visits to Wikipedia, either.

And in addition I follow the RSS feed from: SciFi Wire, Forskning.no, Bergens Tidende, Dagbladet, VG, Nettavisen, MacRumors, ITavisen, Digi, The Register, MacOSXhints, Mac OS X Downloads, Apple Support's iBook articles, Apple Support's iPod articles and even browse through the general Apple Support feed with all articles. :cool:

My Home page is a collection of daily changed comic strips from my own domain (most of them in Norwegian).

I used RSS long before I got Tiger, too. First NetNewsWire Lite, then I ditched that when Firefox got its Live bookmarks, and now I might be in the process of switching back to Safari in part because of the superior RSS feed handling...

But once you've gotten used to RSS you just cannot live without it... :)
