And here's one I want to break out for special attention: LibGuides (https://guides.library.cmu.edu/)
This has subject-specific indexes for research tools, databases, recommended books, etc. The quality seems to vary, but some are quite good indeed.

McBurgers: Old Geocities site with the "McDonald's PDF" of copycat old recipe preparations. Mirrored several places now.

I wish I had more to share, but I really haven't gone anywhere in the Internet recently beyond my own hobbies, KF, and Wikipedia.

Also a meta suggestion: non-Amazon (or big retailers) Internet storefronts with useful products

Spyware Watchdog spyware.neocities.org - "Has a useful article ranking all web-browsers in terms of privacy if you're into such things." Extends beyond browsers, useful for finding software and scarequote "services" unscarequote that are spying on you.
Putting a lot a trust into some list that doesn't prove anything it claims.

No links to patches/commits that remove said spyware.
Some forks of browsers are rated higher/lower than other forks for vague reasons.
Plus you'd think spyware would be a yes/no option, not high/medium/low, and of course it doesn't explain how it gets the rating and what it technically means.

You can use a program like wire shark to watch what the browser is doing. It's not rocket science.

These sites usually inject either malicious http or js (TLN: maybe that link's worth adding?). I don't feel like standing up a sandbox to test but if anyone wants to roll the dice and enable js I'll add it if you can vouch for its sanitation.
What's the intended use for this site? If it does what it claims with no chicanery, it offers no advantage over a non-browser-based VPN or Tor.

I guess it lets you access certain websites from, say, school computers where you can't install anything and certain domains are blocked at the network level. But when the admin of such a network sees users visiting a domain that you can clearly identify as a proxy service before you even visit the page, they'll probably block it. In the long term, you should expect it'll be blocked.

The short-term nature of such sites implies that even if it's useful today, it may not be useful a year from now. The owner will likely let the domain expire, some spammer will take it over, and future visitors to our excellent link page will have to wonder which other erstwhile excellent links have transmogrified to shit.
