About Curlie

Curlie is the largest human-edited directory of the Web. It is constructed and maintained by a passionate, global community of volunteer editors.


Historically known as the Open Directory Project (ODP) and as DMOZ, we were founded in the spirit of the Open Source movement, becoming the only major directory that is 100% free. In accordance with our free use license, there is no cost to submit a site to the directory or use the directory's data.


With the massive growth of the internet, Curlie provides the means for the community to identify and categorize its best content.
