Start pages. Opera started it all (I think). Safari brought with it the classiest of implementations—Top Sites. But there’s always different tastes, different workflows, and different services always try and claim your startpage.
Fav4.org, the work of Daniel Box, is something that’s so simple, beautiful, for the right audience, the most useful of the lot. Fav4.org puts beautiful large icons of four of your favourite sites. No more. Just four large icons, floating in virtual pixels, await your mouse clicks. You can drag-and-drop choose from an extensive list of sites, with more added to its database every so often, the settings of which are saved in your browser cookies. The site also loads super fast; and Top Sites has been known for its aversion to the word ‘snappy’. I don’t know about you, but my homepage has been changed to fav4.org.
