Open Directory Project

A database of websites organized by subject. Originally developed by two Sun engineers in 1998 and called "Gnuhoo," it was soon renamed "NewHoo" and then acquired by Netscape, which renamed it Open Directory Project (ODP). The directory is maintained by volunteer editors, and its URL www.dmoz.org comes from Netscape's Mozilla brand (DirectoryMOZilla). See Mozilla and directory.
