Highlights

One Start Page to Rule them All!




We’re seeing an avalance of Web 2.0 sites out there and besides the popularity of social bookmarking and news aggregator sites, a sizable number of them are vying for the title of the “Start Page of the Year”.

Lets take a quick peek:

  • Start.com – Microsoft’s laid-back effort at Web 2.0
  • Live.com – looking spiffy from a recent revamp but much better than Start.com (and why does MS have two of these?)
  • Google Homepage – Google’s attempt to look like Yahoo back in 1995,wanting more pageviews perhaps just to get back at MySpace?
  • Protopage – full-featured but too cluttered, a little ugly on the design and not very good on usability. Supports multiple pages though.
  • My Yahoo! – reminds me a lot of Geocities
  • Pageflakes – newest baby in town but more promising but always offline half the time.
  • Netvibes – very neat and simple yet packs a lot of features; my bet for the Start Page of the Year.

Did I miss something? I know there’s more out there.

    I’ve always used newsisfree.com. It’s not quite as swish as most of these, but it will also display content from each of the feeds, so you’ve got a lot more than just a bunch of headlines….

    I’ve long been an Opera browser user and never ventured much outside of Opera and the few sites I frequent. Today I setup a netvibes page……man, this thing is awesome! I deleted all of my opera bookmarks and now have everything setup in netvibes. Coool.
