Results are in; Mashable Web Awards for 2008

Written on December 16, 2008 – 9:30 pm | by dave |

Hey hey and a ho ho ho to all (or any other festive feeling that may apply:0)… just a quick post to highlight the winners of the Mashable Web Awards from today. There are likely a few new sites for you to check out as I’ve found a few nuggets already. Of interest YouTube came second for video, how wierd is that? My personal fav, iGoogle, did a respectable second in the best start page category (behind parent papa Google). From dating and gossip to politics, there is plenty to keep you busy.

    Thanks for the votes and for posting! Qoof was clearly the underdog going against Sprout and Clearspring, but the people have spoken! Our game changing Video Commerce widget is something you should keep your eye on. Again, thanks to all those who voted for us!
