    My vote goes to "email". It's one of the basic building blocks of everything about the internet.
    SEMrush
    Instant chat and forums like DP are a very close second.

    I can live without FB or Google, but never without emails. I wonder who invented email.

    And please don't say facebook. Mark Zuckerberg did NOT invent social networking. Friendster, Multiply and other social networks existed WAYY before facebook.

    the best online invention will be being online itself, according to my opinion.... lol !!!!!!!
    the world wide web should be the greatest invention.

    Ok, you can't say like that to Zuckerberg or else I will say there were many email providers but Yahoo was famous only....

    I'd vote for the concept of sharing be it via illegal downloads on one end of the spectrum to youtube videos on the other.

    It is the availability of free and authoritative information on the net that I will consider as one of the best online invention.

    My vote is going to search engines first, and then second to instant messaging clients.

    Email would be the best online invention. Email was invented by Ray Tomlinson in 1971. It was improved in 1972 to include multiple users.

    Yes yes, how could I have forgotten that. This is the lifeblood of most of us here on DP. Being able to make money online. Without the internet, I'd probably be selling houses or cars...
