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

WAKOOPA (http://wakoopa.com)

http://wakoopa.com

This social networking website gives you an insight into what other people are doing online and allows you to discover new web applications, games and software.

Once signed up, you can also build your contacts by adding people already on the site and who share similar interests.

You can also download a tracker that looks at what software is running on your computer every 15 minutes and adds it to your profile.

The site's software section displays the top used applications, alongside a feed of what members are doing right now.

GURL (www.gurl.com)

http://www.gurl.com

This site hosts an online community and content aiming to make the teenage years a little less confusing.

It has videos, stories, fashion, body tips, games, quizzes, photos and even a helpful agony aunt called Heather.

The content is aimed at teenage girls aged 13 and up and deals frankly with the topics of sexuality, emotions and body image.

Parents might want to check how the site treats these subjects before recommending them to their daughter.

There is a whole section in the about pages explaining to parents what the website is trying to achieve.

MYDECO (http://mydeco.com)

http://mydeco.com

This site, by the people who created lastminute.com, mainly aims to provide a retail outlet for UK shoppers. But there is no need to buy anything to get a lot out of it.

Browse through the pages for inspiration, or use the tools in Design Your Home to create mood boards and even set out 3D room designs.

After registering, users can also log in and upload a picture of a room they would like to decorate - the finished design can be printed or e-mailed.

THRU YOU (http://thru-you.com)

http://thru-you.com

The creator of this site took dozens of unrelated musical clips from YouTube and, with the permission of the creators, remixed them into a whole new sound.

There are seven original tracks and a film about the mashup on the site.

Click the film's screen at anytime to link to it on Youtube, where you can watch the original clips that went into the remix.
