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 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.

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 ].

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 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.


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.

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.

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 ] .


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.
