There is a site where you can find out everything about today. You can also find out the horoscope for today. In other respects the site is good. I am satisfied. I advise you too.
The most useful sites are those that benefit a person or nation. I can recommend one of them. It is very useful and necessary, very very useful
Well, one of my surprises is that there are good sites out there, but they are not well known. Depends on the topic, but lately I have been very pleased with Notion, a cool application for organizing information in any form - check lists to do, storage and accumulation of information, project development with someone (you can create a shared access to the document), just keep notes , write a book, article, etc. Similar to evernote, but much more interesting
If we talk about travel, then http://enjourney.ru/ is a social network for travelers. The best reports and travel photos, companionship and exchange of experience.
A lot of things have already been thrown off here, but it seems that it was not. Here, I share :)
http://www.esoliya.ru/wheeloflive Wheel of Life . It helps to analyze all areas of life and clearly demonstrates this.
https://universarium.org/cataloLarge course library (you need to log in)

You can ask your questions rutracker.org - a huge amount of quality content that sometimes does not exist anywhere else sci-hub.com - scientific articles for those who do not have money to buy magazines habrahabr.ru - articles on IT topics. Sometimes useful. maps.google.com - maps. Often convenient and useful market.yandex.ru - the ideal online store soundcloud.com - music
I understand that the list will not give anything new, but these sites are the most necessary and useful.
There are countless websites. But to search for "usefulness" you need to decide what interests you. And depending on interests, select sites. And also do not forget about the forums where you can find help and advice on any issue.
Google Arts & Culture - well, it speaks for itself. https://www.wikipedia.org/ - unexpected, huh? http://tparser.org/ - I'll be the new Russian pirate ! http://lurkmo.re/ - what is not life is a joke! https://thequestion.ru/topic/412/zashkvarshn https://megaresheba.ru/ - to be stupid you will not ban Well, and other sites needed for anything, but not for self-development.
To me, as a person working in the IT field, one of the most useful sites I work with is. For example, if you specify, I can help :)

https://thequestion.ru - I don't want it to look like sucking, but this site really tightened :);
https://drive.google.com - irreplaceable;
http://imdb.com - the best movie base;
https: // habrahabr .ru - I always find a bunch of useful technical information;
https://www.wikipedia.org - a lot of lies, but it helps to get a general idea of almost any topic.
There are a lot of such sites, I can tell.

I flipped through many answers and everyone advises different sites. I think that in our reality, when you follow different news or different thematic communities, it is at least not convenient to have a tone of links. To my personal happiness, now there is such an application as Telegram, a huge number of topics are collected there and you can view them on separate channels. There is one problem that there is no search for these channels. I will immediately suggest one interesting channel that broadcasts about the world of fashion - https://t.me/atfashion. And also here is a site with all the channels in Telegram divided by categories - https: //tlgrm.ru/channels .
Habrahabr - https://habrahabr.ru/
Toaster - https://toster.ru
Giktime - https://geektimes.ru
YouTube - https://www.youtube.com
Google - https://www.google.ru
Live Journal - https://www.livejournal.com
Great music library. There is everything. Only when I’m not here, I set off on further searches. I think the musicians know. We won't tell the rest, they don't need it.
Good music. A lot of. Various styles and subcategories.
An English cult magazine about contemporary music production. Read by everyone who is related to recording studios, rock bands, etc.
Of the not listed, I can still advise stumbleupon.com, a very good site where you first choose your interests when registering and then clicking on the button and any site from the Internet appears that matches your chosen interests. So you can find a lot of interesting things and spend your free time more profitably.
A very convenient and free time timer for business - http://www.timepanther.com
There are different statistics, even if you leave the site and leave the timer, it continues to work.
And there is a program on Echo on the topic of useful sites - Ehonet
Well, I will add recently discovered Wunderlist, the site is visited by almost 20 million people a year, and you live and do not know how he walked past you. The easiest way is to see instructions on how to use it on youtube. It will help to organize all your affairs. And secondly, if you are too lazy to go to fitness and money is not enough, the budget, but no less effective option Freeletics, less large than Wundrlist, but also quite intensively visited. Both sites have Russian interface. If there were no such sites, they would have to be created.
In my opinion, the best site is, of course, my favorite online store. Here I order a uniform for my work ... A very large assortment, pretty low prices, and if you also get in the days of discounts, then this is generally a beauty. (by the way, discounts are there all the time) all the clothes are crazy and very high quality ... Checked!
Arzamas.com is a MASTERPIECE, not a website. He does not need any comments, I can only say that he is humanely oriented
And, of course, postnauka.ru, this is the same cool and they also have an application for their phone
For me personally, the most interesting sites are: Wikipedia, Puzzle English, Learn at home, wH, Litmir, Lib ru and, I love this site - Briefly.
https://www.adme.ru - Self-development. Many comic and interesting articles.
https://mega.nz - The best file sharing service for me (after Skype, of course :))
https://temp-mail.ru - Temporary mail
https://biznet.kiev.ua - Business forum for beginners :)
https://ru.pinterest.com - Tattoos, sketches, beautiful wallpapers, pictures, many, many, many things .
I found glvrd.ru useful
You can edit your own texts yourself. It helped me with my studies. Here is a short description from the site itself
"Glavred helps to clear the text from verbal garbage, checks for compliance with the information style."
The site has been working for a long time. You can buy inexpensive information (actually knowledge) on any topic. I made purchases several times, the technical support works great. I advise everyone.
I'll probably now throw off links to sites that everyone already uses, but I really make up my own top utility.
www.avito.ru - on Avito, at one time I purchased curtains for the hostel for 200 r, a bunch of little things at a bargain price, I sold my old phone and bought two decorative rats with a cage, which I love very much) In short, a site where everything is available and what is not there is on aliexpress.
ru. aliexpress.com - no comments.
www.biodigital.com - awesome free 3d atlas of human anatomy for those who need it. Yes, here 3d itself is so-so and is far from the highest anatomical accuracy, because nerves and ligaments often "hang in the air", you won't see formations on bones and other details here, but I couldn't find it better to study topographic anatomy. Upsetting is the inadequate presence of fascia and peritoneum (often there are no fascia at all). Well, it is completely in English. But there is a section with animations on pathologies, you can change the sex of the model and remove any organs.
beregifiguru.ru - for fit babies who are losing weight and those who are on various diets and are too lazy to count everything on their own. A bunch of calculators from fat percentage to protein-fat-carbohydrate content in foods that you can add to the database yourself (there are already a huge number of them there). You can keep a diary of food, weight, loads. In short, the best functionality. It's a pity I didn't find such an application from my phone.
meduniver.com - materials for those who study in honey.
loveread.ec - an excellent site for reading books, though advertising is annoying, but adblock saved me)
kinogo.club iiii site for movies. Blocking from time to time, I use mirrors. Rarely is there no movie on it.
Proglib.io - many useful articles for those interested in development.
Quora, TheQuestion - many useful answers to a variety of questions;
Multitran - the most detailed vocabulary from different languages;
StackOverflow is a popular site among representatives of the IT sphere, which raises any questions related to programming and (almost) everything has answers;
Engvid is a pantry English lessons;
EdX, Coursera, Udemy, Stepik, Linda, Udacity, Khan Academy - online courses, most of which are free;
GetPocket is a convenient service for saving articles, and just handy recommendations;
Github is a good hosting for open source projects for programmers.
Habrahabr, VC.ru - media
wikipedia, youtube, google, google translator, google maps, google photos, google pictures, google news, google google, google google, google google, google google, go .. what am I doing?
You will of course minus me, but Dvach is now the last place where you can express your opinion, post a photo that violates the feelings of believers in all G-ds, tell a shameful story or ask for advice. 2ch.hk
linguee.com is an indispensable site for translations. It looks for parallel texts in which your search query occurs, gives out separately the most frequent translation variants, separately more rare ones, and below you see a selection of contexts in which your query or its parts were encountered. Ideal for searching translations of terms, phraseological units and other non-obvious phrases.
myshows.me - I recommend every fan to watch TV series (and / or anime). Here you can not only mark the series that you watch / will watch, but also the series you have watched, as well as follow the release of new ones. I would even call it a social network, because here you can add friends and follow them in the news feed. Useful statistics, discussion of episodes, recommendations, a nice interface and a bonus in the form of achievements are waiting for you :)
tunefind.com - search for music from movies and TV series ... Choose the episode you need and see the list of tracks
Over the years, several extremely useful free services have accumulated, which I cannot help but share:
http://smotriuchis.ru/ - many useful and high-quality online courses on various topics: drawing for beginners, development voices, Excel workshops, self-defense courses. Ideal for mastering a new hobby.
http://www.urbandictionary.com/ - if you know English, but don't understand a word from the conversations of ordinary people, this is the best site for slang in English.
http://www.midomi.com/ - if you need to find the name of a song, just sing its tune.
http://genius.com/ - site for music lovers - lyrics with interpretation. You will be surprised when you find out what a deep meaning can be hidden behind the text of your favorite song.
https://2gis.ru/ - good offline maps, build routes, help to find companies nearby, do not let you get lost in the city a person with geographic cretinism is even told the opening hours. But the information is not always correct, be careful.
stepik.org is a platform for creating online courses, there are a couple of good programming courses and not only (in Russian!)
https://htmlacademy.ru/ - the name speaks for itself: )
I don't know what was meant by the word useful, but for me a must-have is mail for 10 minutes. A lot has already been written about him in various questions, but I will say it again: http://10minutemail.com/ allows you to register on the site, and then not receive a bunch of spam in your mail.

For English-speaking users there is just a lot of dark languages .. Esperanto is even there (+ 27 more) In short, I recommend, recommend and recommend again. you will not regret
In case of travel:

The most useful sites = those on which information is convenient, understandable and quickly available.
The main criterion for me personally = reliability and absence of hidden advertising.
