What is it?



A-Z Internet Guide

The worlds largest (and ONLY) alphabetical guide to the Internet. TheAlphaWeb is an alternative to the white box, an easy to use guide to learn knowledge from the Internet.

Please start by looking carefully at the learning page, then start matching thoughts to words.

How it Works

The red alphabet is the start of any search in TheAlphaWeb A to Z system. Wherever you see the red logo you can tap it to bring you back to the red A to Z page.

Think of keywords associated with your thought, & tap the letter associated with the keyword of the subject matter or topic of your search,


Tapping on any of these letters brings you to a second letter choice. Tap again on the two-letter choice associated with the subject matter or topic of your search. Scroll to the subject matter or topic of your search. You will find multiple links associated with your subject matter. The key to the link meanings are listed in the next column.






 Curlie @ I............... Editied by Editors  

As from 17th March 2017
 DMOZ.org  is no longer hosted. This huge resource was compiled by nearly 100,000 editors over 20 years. TheAlphaWeb.com pays tribute to DMOZ by converting all classifications that were listed in the directory and repointing to  Curlie @ I so still allowing a real alternative to the white box search, we hope  Curlie @ I enjoys being woven into  TheAlphaWeb. Please note there is a small anomaly where some searches that were originally in  DMOZ.org  cannot as yet be transferred and replicated in  Curlie @ . All directory listed elements will have been translated from  DMOZ.org  to  Curlie @ . To read about how Curlie evolved and its history please  Curlie @ history

 bubl.ac.uk  links were maintained until 1st April 2011 & serve as a historical reference as to that date and links away from  bubl.ac.uk are care of The Internet Archive, at the  WAY BACK  MACHINE .

At the end of 2013 
 Yahoo.com  ceased to publish the   Yahoo! Directory , we keep it included in TheAlphaWeb frozen in time as it was, and how it is preserved in the Internet Archive

On the 25th June 2015 a  major consortium of universities  stopped updating the IPL 
 Internet for Children IPL2  (Internet Public Library), after 20 years not enough people found it and used it. It is preserved in TheAlphaWeb as of the 1st August 2015. 

On 17th March 2017 another milestone in the evolution of the Internet was achieved with the ending of 
 DMOZ.org  /  DMOZ.org , The largest Human Edited Directory woman/man has ever seen, 100,000 individual editors poored effort and kindness into maintaining a magnificent edifice of knowledge. It is important to remember that a young Google (Google Directory) used the DMOZ structure to populate its first steps into the World. TheAlphaWeb has adapted to this change by doing two things.

All  DMOZ.org  "Directory Classifications" entries have been changed into Curlie red "I Curlie @ I" entries. All  DMOZ.org  "Search" entries have been changed into Curlie red "I Google I" entries, although this is not the tidiest solution, it works. When this system was designed there was an assumption  DMOZ Classifications  was to big to go away!

As the curator and sole entity behind  TheAlphaWeb, I (MB) bow down to each editor of DMOZ and all persons involved in the developement, maintenance and presentation of the Open Directory Project, Also, as from 2018 now am pleased to be able bow down to
 Curlie @  and all that support it.

You can compare the similarities between the three major players at the beginning of the "Internet Age" / "Knowledge Age" here and compare them with TAW:

 DMOZ Directory  

 Google Directory  

 Yahoo! Directory  

 TheAlphaWeb   +  

There will be a day too that TAW is no longer maintained, it will be at this point it will join all the other entities that now make up the most amazing knowledge bank mankind has ever seen.
