With almost 1.8 billion existing websites in the world today, it is quite impossible to be able to even check out 1% of that. The sheer volume is overwhelming. When you enter a single-word search in Google, in less than 1 second, you get at least 100 million search results. Even a search of the best casino websites will give you 37 million hits in 0.50 seconds. Little does the public know about cool websites that actually exist in the Web.
