Here at Maximum PC, we've always done our fair share of website recommendation articles--including a couple of doozies from the past few years. And of course we're not the only ones who do this sort of article either; it's a proven popular format. But this year, we thought we'd mix things up a little bit.

Although this list is available online, I also created this presentation which provides the information as a slideset - embedded below. Last year's presentation has been viewed over 90,000 times on Slideshare, so I hope this one is equally useful. I have also produced a number of other pages that offer different view on the results. The Winners & Losers 2010 page shows the tools that have gone up and down the list or fallen off it completely or are new entrants this year.
