For me, it's a tie between: http://community.middlebury.edu/~harris/SubIndex/classics.gr.html and The Little Sailing: http://www.mikrosapoplous.gr/en/texts1en.htm ; the first is full of extremely helpful articles covering both Greek and Latin, and the other is Greek texts, mostly .rtf files, which is great if you plan on printing them off.

B-Greek, but it's actually number one. (When you are number two, you try harder. :)
I am writing in Ancient Greek not because I know Greek well, but because I hope that it will improve my fluency in reading. I got the idea for this from Adrianus over on the Latin forum here at Textkit.

I'm afraid Perseus hasn't been very high on my list for quite a long time. It's too unreliable. Once I had Diogenes my main use for Perseus — the unabridged dictionaries — had a more reliable solution.

Probably Bibliotheca Augustana is the site I most often search first for particular texts.

χαίρετε
First of all, χάριν δίδωμι for the idea of requesting for other links.

I do agree with you. In fact, the "Diogenes" link in your http://www.aoidoi.org/about.html is my favorite way for the dictionaries: once you got it, we do not need to deal with the Diogenes software.

I myself like very much the Stefan Hagel's page and like also very much the Spiphanies page (Brenda's blog) for its many references and links.

Finally, I like very much to listen to the sounds in these pages of SOCIETY FOR THE ORAL READING OF GREEK AND LATIN LITERATURE (SORGLL)

Thank you! I'm glad someone else besides me finds the link list helpful.

My favorite "general" site is probably the Greek Grammar on the Web gateway.
More specialized sites I like are the Enchiridon of Greek Meter and the Ancient Library (mostly for its indexed English-Greek dictionary, most of the other texts I haven't used).

I use that English-Greek dictionary a lot too. I also have to say that I use google books a lot for Greek related stuff and there's a lot of information there, especially in the various out-of-copyright editions of works that are often helpful when you come across something that's tricky because of the grammar or some allusion or something.

About perseus, I use the mirror at the University of Chicago site, http://perseus.uchicago.edu/, and I've never had any problems.
