For general information, no. For more specialised information, yes.

For example, the two "loves of my life" are English literature and the classics (Latin and Greek). There's no on-line resource which is equivalent in depth or reliability to my trusty "Oxford Companion to English Literature" or "Oxford Classical Dictionary".
