DMOZ, an acronym of Directory Mozilla, was rolled out just under 19 years ago as a rival to the then dominant Yahoo! Directory. Yahoo! Directory began winding down back in October 2002 when it changed to crawler-based listings to provide its main results as opposed to continue being human edited. It officially closed in December 2014.
