Everything you could want to know about prime numbers. Lots of information to browse and plenty of links to continue reading after. It took me a while to look through just their long list of known primes. This site has handy tips for how to calculate primes, both big and small, and is recently updated. The formatting is heavily text oriented, but the content is easily read.
