This is the best online source for meanings of acronyms and initialisms (wisely not distinguished in its listings)–but it's burdened by problems that could easily be corrected:

(a) Its organizational structure is needlessly opaque. Translations of each abbreviation are arranged in columns according to usage categories [Information Technology, Business & Finance, etc.]. The first column, formatted a bit differently, is headed "All definitions." The user is led to believe that this is simply a restatement in one place of the various definitions in the other columns, but this is not the case. (For example, the common meaning of ABS as antilock braking system is found only in the "All" column.) The site should either [1] have the "All" column reflect exactly what may be seen in the other columns, or [2] rename it "All other" (or similar), and have it reflect only what may not be seen in the other columns.

(b) Confusion is proliferated by the site's introductory statement, "Find out what any acronym, abbreviation, or initialism stands for." In fact, Acronymfinder understandably makes no attempt to define the thousands of abbreviations that are neither acronyms nor initialisms.

(c) A disturbingly high number of the links found in its expository pages lead nowhere–including a link that appears in several contexts to its contact or feedback page. In view of its boast, "100% human-edited by paid staff," one wonders why a member of this staff could not take the few minutes to use one of the many free online tools that will easily track down such dead or broken links.

A good site for finding the meaning of abbreviations and acronyms. Easy to read layout, clean looking, with a few ads. Trustworthy, no malware et al encountered.

I contributed many acronyms to this site several years ago. I have always found it useful and did what I could to contribute acronyms. I knew that they were not in the site's breakout of the acronyms. Never had a problem with the site, per se. Now, since I met a milestone and they listed one of my e-mail addresses under contributors, I have had SPAM to that address ever since for years. That is my only regret regarding contributing to this site. I do not blame them. I blame the spammers who are quite calculated, deliberate and malicious in their actions to obtain, use, sell, scam and spam the addresses they steal from such sites. Let this be a lesson to you. Contribute to good sites with useful information, BUT DON'T give your real e-mail address to be listed as a contributor. You can derive pleasure from what you have done by knowing what you have contributed. But you don't have to set yourself up for years of SPAM from these cyber-criminals. Just be careful and circumspect.

This site is using targeted advertising in (some of it's?) references, without being clear about them being advertisements. Dishonest.
