*Ranking among all websites in the world

Please take into account the following:

1) Sub-pages of popular portals (like Yahoo Chess, Pogo.com Chess, etc.) are not listed.
2) Popularity is not always correlated with quality. Some great, but not popular enough chess websites are not listed.
3) Rankings may be incomplete due to an enormous number of chess websites that exist in the world & language barriers. Should you discover an unlisted chess website that fits in the top-20 category, please let us know.

@Gerd TWIC has a good shot at the rankings, but is currently out of top-20. 
ChessCafe's chances of making it to the list are dim.

Cool! 30+ years ago, I played a few games of post-card cernospordence chess and had some fun. I was never a particularly good tournament player, but I still enjoy an occasional game. A few years ago I drew a friendly game with a master. Well he had a master rating, once, but in any case he is by far the strongest opponent I ever drew against. He was distracted and I got lucky ;-) Anyhow, looks like the time limits can be pretty liberal on that site, so I might be willing to try it out.
