Website of the Week (refdesk.com)

toggle-button

refdesk.com is a site that defies an easy description. It has a little of everything: news of all kinds from all over, search engines, a dictionary and encyclopedia, weather, facts at a glance, several items of the day (such as word of the day), reference tools, and more.

The site is a basic three column layout with very few graphics. Some may find that a little odd in these days of heavy graphic and flash use, but the site loads quickly and is ideal for anyone on a slow connection. The site automatically refreshes itself so you get current data.
With 28,860,038 visits since September 2011 it's clear they are doing something right. :-)
The site is ad supported with a paid version that is ad-free.

Wander on over and have a look, though you might find yourself losing track of time when you visit.
