Top 100* Mathematical Websites

This is a list of places on the web that I like and have personally found useful.
It is frequently added to (about once a week), *currently with 131 entries.
Last year, to aid navigation, I reorganised the list into categories.
I'm always open to suggestions of websites that should be added.
