As 2009 draws to a close, once again we take a trip down memory lane to reflect on the best (and worst!) that the Internet had to offer this year.

We asked and you voted! With over 72,000 votes cast in our second-annual Urlies Awards, the cream of the web crop rose to take the coveted title of Urlies award winner. Each of the 10 main categories received a People's Choice (based on highest number of votes) and Editors' Choice (picked by your fearless Urlesque editors) pick. The winners for each category are listed below. Visit the individual category pages to revisit the videos, photos and trends that brought so much joy to our 2009.
