What were the 20 most popular web sites every year since 1996?

A few other sites have posted this graph of the 20 most popular web sites every year since 1996, but I think it's interesting enough to pass along.

1996-2000  This section of the graph is the original dot-com boom era.

AOL really dominated at the start of the century. 

Looking at 2009-2013, the data (from comScore) shows the top five continues to be Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Facebook and AOL, with Apple, LinkedIn and other mixed in with some of the "old media" companies.
