I should note that this is limited to licenses that are OSI-approved, which is obviously a lot but not comprehensive.  I generally like using Wikipedia but there's also TLDR legal: https://tldrlegal.com/ (thanks SYSTEM).

I should note that whenever possible, I try to link to the developers' license.  This is important for licenses that aren't labelled well or are are unique.  A great example is the recent BSD license confusion on OW Shredder.
