Entry Pages

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Jeff Staples sent out an email to our Bible study about using Google as his personalized start pages (or home pages or entry pages or whatever-you-really-want-to-call-it pages).

But there are many more personalizable entry pages.
Microsoft has been working on Microsoft Live.com (which now boasts Firefox support).
Download Squad, TechCrunch (Ajax Desktops Won’t Stop, Protopage v 2.0, Zoozio – Hey, Another AJAX Desktop! ), and Lifehacker (Create a personalized homepage with Protopage) have all mentioned the following:

  • Protopage
  • Zoozio is still doing invite-only beta testing, but looks promising
  • NetVibes is the current favorite of TechCrunch
  • Goowy is more of a desktop then an entry page, but it’s still cool. It uses Flash, not AJAX though.
  • Eskobo is the latest contender. TechCrunch just reported about it today. Worth a look.
