Gone but not forgotten: the best 'dead' websites on the Internet next

Loading...

Here at PC World, we've seen a lot of cool websites come and go over the years -- from tiny independent gems to all-conquering juggernauts. Even seemingly untouchable websites meet their doom eventually (just look at Wikipedia's current administrational woes for mortifying proof). Sooner or later the grim reaper comes knocking on every server door. One day it'll be our turn. Gulp.

Being a sentimental bunch, we've decided to honour a few of our fallen friends and rivals. Over the next few pages, you'll find odes to some of the best websites ever to shuffle off the mortal coil. [Note: to qualify as 'dead', a website needs to be completely inactive for at least six months]. We've also included links to existing mirrors and archives, where applicable.
