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.

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.

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
