Havent booked in a while through some of these sites, and it sucks that Expedia owns just about everything now,

orbitz, traveloicty, expdia, hotels.com cheaptickets , etc. all one company.

Who else is left that's more independent?

there are tons of smaller booking agents who offer better deals to undercut the bigger OTA's with the same benefits (24 hours to cancel, trip insurance, etc)

For a lot of the travel industry they seem to struggle with the low margins that are available in this industry. There have been a lot of online holiday companies emerge. In the end though, not all of them can exist and not all of them will survive. It's a sad fact of life.

I've been travelling for about 6+ months straight and I've been booking nearly everyday with Agoda. From what I've seen they have the best prices and fairly good coverage of all the lodging types. Not really a small company by any means but it's not Expedia haha. Agoda seems to be the defacto standard in Asia at least...
