Kate Russell gives us her latest selection of the best sites on the World Wide Web.

Del.icio.us website

The BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites.

There are thousands of first rate pages on the internet, the only trouble is they are hidden amongst thousands of millions of really rather rubbish ones.

So how do you jump straight to all the best content on the web? Apart from watching Click, of course.

The answer is del.icio.us, which houses a thriving community of friendly net-izens who do not mind you rummaging around in their bookmarks folder, as long as they can have a look in yours too.

You will need to register and install the toolbar - there are full instructions for a range of browsers - or if you prefer not to download anything you can create a bookmarklet to help you save and access your favourite pages by following the instructions in the link.

Then just start saving pages as you surf.

All your links are accessible at the website URL, followed by slash and then your username.

You can also browse other people's bookmarks and discover a whole new world of fun.

If you like a page, tag it yourself, thus building its popularity in the community.

And if you like it a lot why not make the original poster part of your network? You can do this, and see their whole list of URLs by clicking the link to their name.


Aircraft Spotting.net website

The BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites.

Next up is a site that was sent in by Erica Armstrong, and is an absolutely must-see for all you aviation enthusiasts, otherwise known as plane-spotters.

For those not familiar with the art of "spotting" it usually involves camping out with a notepad, a pair of binoculars and a long-lens camera waiting for your spotees to show themselves, be they birds, trains, or in this case planes.

While the design of this site is rather basic and a bit 1980s, I have to say the content should be invaluable to anyone who needs a few tips on the best places to hang out to capture those planes on film.

Click Airports to get you started, and then scroll down the page for a list of links to the airports covered. Each section has a satellite picture of the area, marked with good spots for spotting, together with text descriptions about anything you should look out for.

Other sections include the website author's own collection of more than 1000 pictures, and his extensive log book of spotting excursions and loads more.


TiddlyWiki website

The BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites.

Another viewer recommendation next - has everyone been surfing the internet instead of working this week?

We have Richard Upstone from the UK to thank for pointing us at TiddlyWiki.

Regular viewers will have heard of wiki before - it is open source server software that allows people to edit the content of a webpage through their browser window.

What TiddlyWiki does is provide a wiki page template that you can download and customise for your own needs at home or work - be it an interactive to-do list, a blog, or your collection of recipes or sporting stats.

That is the beauty of wiki, it will work for anything.

Explore the links on the left and you will soon get the hang of it, then to get started just click the download software link also on the left.

Right-click the indicated link to save a copy of TiddlyWiki on your desktop, and the instructions on how to edit it are contained within.
