Curlie is a multilingual open-content directory of World Wide Web links. It is constructed and maintained by a community of volunteer editors.

Curlie is organized under the non-profit organization “Curlie Project, Inc.” As of March 2017, it is the largest human-edited web directory available with over 3.8 million web sites categorized in over 1 million categories and from over 90 different countries.[1][2][3][4] It started with most of the content of the DMOZ project, which had shut down on March 17, 2017. It retains at least one former staff member and some senior editors of DMOZ.[5] Some describe Curlie as the "official successor" to DMOZ.[6][7] As of 2018, aspiring editors need to fill out an application to join the Curlie editing community.[8]
