DMOZ (or is it D Moz?) is the directory maintained by the Open Directory Project; it tries to be the biggest and best directory on the web.

DMOZ is mostly famous by being the source for Google's directory information. This is somewhat ironic, as it is google's awesome power that has finally made human-edited directories virtually obsolete.

DMOZ gets its name from the fact that it was originally the directory associated with the Netscape Navigator browser, which is traditionally codenamed Mozilla.

Twic I supports a Special URL scheme for pointing to DMOZ categories.
