Besides the most known map renderings which you see on http://www.openstreetmap.org/ there many more, but I could not find a good overview of map websites.

As far as I know, those sites are different in the map layers they have, in the basic user inteface, and the features they offer.

Please post any OSM-Browsing websites you know along with some details. I'll go ahead an post the ones I know, one site per answer.

Edit: Maybe this should not be a question but a wiki post - but now it's to late, the question is posted :)

For the far future I wished that there was one single browsing page which combines the advantages of all the pages we have now. But I think combining all these complex Javascript and Server Side Scriptings into a singe page might be very complex, so for the near future, I'd be glad to see a page that at least offers all those layers at once.

Ok, so you don't like the question and vote it down without commenting your reasons. I don't know if this site has any policies for list-style questions, but other very similar sites have them, see http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/11760/whats-the-opinion-on-list-questions and http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/9782/what-about-a-multi-answer-question

As I stated above, this could have been an article in the OSM wiki instead of a question here, but my experience with wikis is that it takes forever until people insert stuff, so I hoped that there are some useful answers here.

I would really recommend to use the wiki instead. Please do so. My experience is that the OSM wiki is very up-to date about the topic you are dealing with about collections of websites or applications. Elsewise voiting down this may be near.

There is a List of OSM based Services on the wiki.

There are several other lists on the wiki which might be useful, eg Software or Applications. These lists are probably incomplete, so you can add other services that you know of.

There is also a wiki page OSM Online Browsing, which partially overlaps with the List of OSM based Services.
