Binge Browser Reaches 100!

Today we added the 100th website to Binge Browser.  The honor goes to Incidental Comics, a charming, beautifully drawn comic, that illustrates the author's quirky views on subjects ranging from art to motivation.

These first 100 websites are only a small portion of the sites we hope will eventually be available on Binge Browser.  To get to 1000, or 10000, or even 100000 websites, though, we need to hear from you, the user.  What website do YOU want to Binge?  To get to our next milestone we need your input!  Request websites here, or leave suggestions in the comments.  

(Note: the very first website added to Binge Browser was Penny Arcade)
