All My Faves Is A Simple Alternative To Traditional Internet Navigation

Most of us have a set routine when it comes to navigating the internet and do not venture far from that routine. When we do venture, we go to the search engines for answers. As a result, we miss out on a lot of what is out there due to the ranking structure of the search engines and the cumbersome nature of the internet. Today I want to share with you what I call the “ultimate home page”, which is actually called All My Faves.

All My Faves

All My Faves is a categorized virtual directory and visual platform that consists of the best (and latest) web sites on the internet. The developer’s of All My Faves has done all the work for you to help you save time and to help keep you safe (all sites are scrutinized and reviewed). I often visit the site and make it adventure in finding something new. You will not go wrong with All My Faves…

Create Your Own Browser Home Page With Myfav.es

I am always looking for new ways to launch web sites from my browser’s homepage. My criteria is that it has to look attractive and must be device friendly and readable from my computer, tablet  or smartphone. Currently I am using Symbaloo for this purpose.

Today I ran into a new kid on the block called Myfav.es that you may want to take a look at and one that I will be keeping a close eye on.  So far it is meeting my criteria and appears to be fully customizable. The cool part about Myfav.es is that can sign up for your own personal URL that enables you to get to your page from anywhere there is internet access and from any internet enabled device.

There is no signup required! However, there are perks to having an account:

Bookmarks to the Best on the Internet Already Created for YOU!

Over a period of time we collect numerous bookmarks to our favorite sites to the point it becomes unmanageable, unforgettable and actually very inefficient.

Recently I featured a blog post about a web service called Kadaza.

Kadaza

Kadaza is a visual directory only showing the absolute best and most popular websites in many different categories.

Following that post I have been using the living daylights out of Kadaza.  Why? In today’s internet world we should only be bookmarking sites that are specific to our current specific interests and needs. Otherwise, collecting and managing bookmarks to commonly known sites in my opinion is mundane. Kadaza takes care of the mundane part.

Following the Kadaza post, I found a nice segment to their site that lists all of the Kadaza categories in alphabetical order. In each category only the best, most popular and reliable sites on a specific topic are listed. For example, you can click on “S” for “Shopping” or “E” for “Electronic Stores”, etc…

If you are looking for the ultimate bookmarking list, then this one is it.

You can get to the Kadaza bookmarked categories [HERE].

Improve Your Browsing Experience with Speedtile

Most of the popular web browsers out there today give us the ability to setup a homepage that will tile our favorites sites into an interface (of web page thumbnails) that is commonly called a speed dial. Typically, this interface can be setup, depending on the browser, as a browser option, addon or extension. The beauty of this interface is that once your homepage loads you can quickly go to your most frequently visited sites by visually selecting one of the thumbnails. The speed dial interfaces are completely customizable and defintiely will make your internet browsing experience more efficient.

Typically, once you set up your speed dial, the data is stored on your computer; BUT, what if you want the same interface (you created) on another computer (for example at work)? The closest solution that I found, to make this happen with minimal fuss, is with an online service called Speedtile. With Speedtile you can access your speed dial anywhere there is internet access.

Speedtile

Speedtile requires you to setup up an account (which is FREE) where a login is required to get to your very own online speed dial interface. It is very simple to create your individual tiles by adding your favorite sites (or URL’s). Once you enter the web address of the site, a mini version of the site will magically appear (called a tile). You can even add categories.

Speedtile

See the What’s On My PC blogroll on Speedtile

With Speedtile you can share your bookmarks with others. For example, and this is very cool; I took all the sites on my blogroll and created a public Speedtile site. If you would like to see what a speed dial looks like, consisting of links from the What’s on My PC blogroll, then [ CLICK HERE ].

Bookmarks4Techs – An Ongoing Experiment

If you haven’t visited Bookmarks4Techs lately, then you are missing out on a growing list of tech sites. As of the date of this posting, the site is currently listing 464 bookmarked links to computer and information technology sites across the internet. You can literally spend hours hitting these sites. Also posted are RSS feeds to some of my favorite blogs and sites. This will continue to grow, as well.

Another featured experiment is that I am tyring is randomly selecting articles, from the 464 bookmarked sites, on a daily basis and posting links to those articles under Random Tech News. I am hoping that I can get people to drop by to read the latest news from the random selection and to encourage site owners to place Bookmarks4Techs on their blogroll.

Bookmarks4Techs, I set up to encourage people to learn about information technology and computers.  If you want to learn what is going on out there, the bookmarked sites is a good place to start.

Bookmark Your Favorite Sites with Skloog

If you liked Symbaloo and Kadaza, then you will also like Skloog.

SkloogSkloog is an online bookmarking service where you setup an account (for FREE) that allows you to create and store your favorite bookmarks online. Skloog is currently in beta. The “cool factor” to Skloog is that it uses the speed dial interface that we are seeing more and more of, not only in our browsers, but online as well.

Skloog

The plus to storing your favorites in the cloud (online) is that you you can access your favorite bookmarked sites from any location where there is internet access. Using the speed dial interface with tabbed categories makes surfing the internet a breeze.

In comparison to some of the other services I have tested similar to this, Skloog may end up winning the shootout.  Skloog acts more like a bookmark manager, is attractive, is fast and is loaded with features that brings it all together to make bookmarking fun (and efficient).

Some features I dug up about Skloog:

Add a bookmark and shortcut simultaneously

Add a bookmark through email

Delete and Edit Bookmarks

Bookmark from your toolbar

Organize your bookmarks with tags and categories

Email a bookmark

Email multiple bookmarks to a friend

Import/Export bookmarks

Search bookmarks

Sort bookmarks

Create a Skloog email address

A Visual Directory of the Best Sites on the Internet

How would you like to have a visual directory of what is considered the best of the internet at your fingertips? You can with a Kadaza.

Kadaza

Kadaza appears to be a relatively new service that claims to show  the absolute best and most popular websites in many different and numerous categories. Kadaza is very easy to use and requires no account or login.  Everything is already setup and ready to go in a very appealing speed dial type interface.

Kadaza

All sites on Kadaza are human selected with great care and organized in the best possible way, making it easy to use, intuitive, and helpful for everyone. We use a strict site selection process where sites on Kadaza should represent original, unique and informational content that contributes something unique to a specific Kadaza category. In short, we only select the best and most popular sites in each category. But we also introduce new and exciting sites.

From my testing of Kadaza I am finding the more I use it, the more engaging and enticing it becomes. There are customization features available such as creating a background and customizing your own tiles.

Sample Background Image

Kadaza

Your customization settings are stored as a cookie on your computer. One of the cool features of Kadaza is that when you clean your cookies, the settings automatically will restore themselves. So, even of you delete your cookies, you won’t loose your preferences at the Kadaza homepage.

Overall, Kadaza is a keeper and would definitely fit in as your main homepage in your browser. I do like the fact you do not have to sign up for anything which ultimately makes Kadaza a privacy pleaser.

Largest Repository of Tech Sites on the Internet

Most of the readers and visitors to the blog have seen me posting site updates to my sister web site, Bookmarks4Techs.com. Bookmarks4Techs is the largest repository of listed tech sites currently available on the internet. If you have the desire to learn about computers and information technology, then Bookmarks4Techs is your place to start!

The site is very NEW and is an experiment of sorts in a couple of different areas.

I have been posting ads on the site, using Adsense and the Amazon Affiliate program.  What I am finding so far is that I need to stay away from saturating the site with ads, so I have reduced that somewhat so that page loads are faster.  I’m not going to get rich from it anyway.

Link Exchanges

Another change I am currently working toward is providing RSS feeds to my favorite blogs and sites in the sidebars so that the reader can review, in one place, what is going on with many of the other blogs and sites. If you are interested in a link exchange, I will post your RSS Feed in the sidebar of the blog and will increase the font size of your site name on the bookmarks list. I will continue to post the RSS feeds (for link exchanges) until the sidebars are full.

When you first pull up the site you will see recent site updates. To get to the bookmarks, click on the bookmarks tab at the top of the page.

I am hoping to get this site to the popular status level. Again, if interested in a link exchange, visit Bookmarks4Techs  [ HERE ]. To all my reader, bookmark this site and drop by often.

A Free-For-All Comprehensive Home Page

When I am on other PC’s, other than my own, I like making observations of such things like how the person keeps their Windows desktop organized or what their home page is in their web browser. As a techie type person these simple observations act as a gauge and tell me a lot about the person or person(s) behind that computer.

I have found that a great majority of people when they get a new computer will very seldom change or mix-up their selection for their web browser homepage. They usually will have the home page set to their internet service provider’s web site thinking it is a requirement of the provider. Folks, far, far, far from the truth… You can set that homepage to whatever web site you desire. As a matter of fact, in any of the popular browsers, you can have an array of sites (more than one page) load when you start your browser. Folks, it is time to get out of that browser home page rut and start mixing it up…

How would you like to have a home page where you can add your own favorite sites and at the same time have access to categorized links (already configured for you) to the most popular sites on the internet?  It is possible by using AllMyFaves.  As a matter of fact, once you signup at AllMyFaves, add your own favorites, you can then share your page with your friends at your very own web link.

AllMyFaves

The last time I did a review on AllMyFaves, the option to add your own favorite sites, was not available. As a matter of fact, I was very excited to see this option. This tells me that the developers are listening to the users and bringing AllMyFaves to the cloud computing level (which is the future).

AllMyFaves

AllMyFaves is a free-for-all, comprehensive home page that offers an original approach to exploring the Internet. Instead of, say, typing a key search word into the text box of a search engine, AllMyFaves has already organized all the topics and information that are available on the web in a form of a list of categories and logos. This way, AllMyFaves is actually a simple and efficient visual directory of the Internet.

In addition to the option of adding your own favorite sites, you will see links to Weekly Faves and Weekly Games. The Weekly Faves are updated every Monday and the Weekly Games are updated every Wednesday.

Join AllMyFaves

NEW Google Chrome Extension called START

UPDATE: The Chrome Extension, called Fabulous New Tab, is now called Start.  The developer, as a result of the evolution of this extension, opted to change the name.  It is an awesome extension.  Be sure to check it out [ HERE ] .

Recently I posted a review about the Google Chrome extension called Bookmarks Browser and Fabulous New Tab. The developer of Bookmarks Browser and Fabulous New Tab has enhanced (or evolved) this extension into another fantastic extension called Start (an easy to use, flexible start page).

Here’s how it works… After you install “Start” (in Google Chrome) and you open a new tab, your saved bookmarks and toolbar favorites are conveniently available to you in a very attractive (easy to use) interface. At this point you can select the site you desire to open and voila’ it will open in that tab. This extension not only makes access to your bookmarks readily available in an otherwise blank (new) tab, it also allows you to open the bookmarked site in the same tab. A very nice and well thought out application…

If you are a Google Chrome user, you can get this NEW Chrome browser extension  [ HERE ] .

Make Symbaloo Your Internet Starting Point

I don’t know what it is, but I have an obsession for program launchers and web launchers. I guess it comes from my past experience as an IT Manager where I found out early on that customizing an end users PC with shortcut toolbar menus to their apps, saved them and me a whole lot of headaches. Even today, I find myself testing various launchers to see if I can make my PC and internet experience all that more efficient and easier. This is where Symbaloo comes in…

image Symbaloo is an online cloud app that is designed to make your web experience more accessible. From my experience I have found that the everyday home computer user is a big creature of habit and will usually visit the same web sites over and over using their browser bookmarks or favorites. Occasionally, this creature of habit will stray from the comfort zone and visit other places. If you are one of those creatures of habit, then Symbaloo will make your life a whole lot easier.  Symbaloo allows you to customize your very own start page (or home page) that tiles your favorites, rss feeds, etc… in the form of icons, on one page. You can even upload and use your own icons if you desire. If you are familiar with “speed dial” in the Opera and in the Firefox browser (as an extension), then you will relate to Symbaloo. Only difference is that Symbaloo is much more attractive (and configurable) AND can be accessed from any PC where there is internet access.

For example, below is a small screenshot of my Symbaloo desktop page (that is still under construction).  When I launch my browser (Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer), this page is the first page I see. From my Symbaloo desktop page I can easily check all of my email accounts, my blog, perform searches, etc…

image

Another cool factor to Symbaloo is that you can make additional sub pages, that are conveniently tabbed across the top of Symbaloo. For example, I am currently working on a second page that will contain RSS feeds to everyone that is on the What’s On My PC blogroll.

image

There is a little bit of a learning curve to using Symbaloo, but once you get it down you will not regret it.  One area where I experienced brain lock was on how to edit, delete, or move/copy the tiles.  What you do is drag the tile to the middle of the tiled area (in the white) and it will automatically provide you with options to perform those tasks.

If you are a Firefox user, there is a Symbaloo Bookmarker browser extension that will allow you to rapidly (and automatically) bookmark sites to your Symbaloo desktop.

The only way to give this a try is to visit Symbaloo and play around with it.  Symbaloo is currently in beta; but, don’t let that stop you.  It has worked flawlessly for me. If you like it, sign up for a FREE account and start customizing your very own personalized internet launching point.

Speed Dial your way in Firefox

Many internet users have specific web sites they visit on a daily basis and often do not venture out beyond that.  If you are a advocate of the browser, Mozilla Firefox, then you know there are browser extensions (add-ons) that you can download to customize and make your browsing experience a more efficient experience.

One of my favorite extensions that I have installed in Firefox is called Speed Dial.  Speed Dial is actually an idea that has been borrowed from another browser called Opera that gives you fast access to your most used web sites.  Speed Dial loads in a tab, and will show thumbnail views of websites you have assigned to Speed Dial. The thumbnails are automatically refreshed in the background when the site changes. Once you have your Speed Dial customized to your liking, you simply click on the Speed Dial button on the browser toolbar to load your thumbnail collection of your most frequently visited sites.  Click on any of the thumbnails to visit the selected site. You can get the Speed Dial extension [ HERE ] .

image

Features as described by publisher:

Speed Dial will open in a tab, showing the currently assigned websites as thumbnails.

The Speed Dial tab can be loaded automatically in new tabs and windows.

The assigned websites can be loaded automatically by pressing the Control key and it’s assigned number.

Drag & drop reordering.

Add dialog when clicking an unassigned entry.

Automatic refresh of thumbnails by using a background browser (with configurable interval per thumbnail).

Toolbar buttons to access Speed Dial’s functionality (including a drop down of the assigned websites).

Multiple addresses can be assigned to a single dial, similar to the way the home page is handled (separating them with the “|” character).

Weather status, which can locate your position automatically based on your IP (courtesy of GeoBytes). Clicking on that dial will provide the full weather forecast.

A very cool Web 2.0 bookmarking Service – iterasi

I recently posted an article “What’s In Your Cloud?” about Web 2.0 and cloud computing.  If you have not read that article, I suggest that you do so.  Why?  Web 2.0 (cloud computing) services are being developed everyday and the article helps you to understand how these services or applications will work.  As a matter of fact, I am educating myself as I research many of the Web 2.0 services or cloud applications.  I am finding that there are many, many cloud apps out there right now.

One such cloud app that I recently came across, that in my opinion, is very cool.  It is called “iterasi”, a bookmarking service, that allows you to capture and save entire pages right from your browser.iterasi

Once a page is captured, it is archived in your account, in the state for which it was captured.  For example, with my current account, by using a bookmarklet tool that is provided, I can capture this page (article) to my account and keep it there as long as I want, even if this article is deleted or changed.  There is also a scheduling component built in that allows you to update the pages in your account.  Iterasi is currently in beta, but looks quite promising.  In my opinion, if you do any type of research, this is a must have tool. You can click on the graphic below to see a demo of iterasi in action.

iterasi demo

What is iterasi? (as described on the website).

With iterasi, you can save web pages exactly as you see them in your browser. This guarantees the article, receipt, review or recipe will be what it was a day, a week or a year later. Unlike bookmarks, which capture the address of a page, iterasi captures the page itself. With bookmarks there is no guarantee the page will be what it was when you saved it – or even be there at all. We archive the page in your private account on our servers where you can search and retrieve your saved pages anytime, from anywhere, forever. You can also share what you save with friends and colleagues, and search the iterasi Community for topics of common interest.
What can I do with iterasi?

Here are some of the things you may want to save and share with iterasi:
interesting articles
market research
blog posts
online receipts
a Facebook or MySpace page
travel itineraries and vacation plans
Google map directions
recipes
Why do I need iterasi?

Web pages change very fast. Links disappear or point to something unrelated to what you thought you had saved. Pages disappear completely. Or the content changes dynamically based on a number of variables (ever try to send a link from a travel site?). So much information is lost when you just save a link. That’s why you need iterasi. With iterasi, you are saving the page as it appears to you at that point in time. Don’t lose that specific page ever again.

New Additions to the “Launch Pad”…

The really neat thing about blogging is that you learn to find other blogs and web sites that have an interest or subject that is common with yours. I love cruising IT blogs and websites. To me it is like looking for a hidden trove of information. If you are someone that has an interest in freeware software, open source software, and information technology, I encourage you to use the "Launch Pad" located on the sidebar of the blog to visit the sites that have been collected. You can learn a whole lot by just reading about, reviewing, installing and making software work. To me that is the name of the game. My IT roots are attributed not from tearing PC’s apart, but was from installing and learning software to make the PC and devices work in a way that made the end user’s job consistently easier and more efficient.

The following blog and web sites have been added to the "What’s On My PC – Launch Pad", which is located on the sidebar at the right side of the blog. If there is something out there that meets the common denominator with all of these sites, that you would like me to add to this list, feel free to leave a comment. As always, Thank you for visiting my blog…
