My Fav.es is a “free, elegant, & customizable start page for your favorite web browser, iPad, or iPhone”. It’s awesome and definitely lives up to it’s description.
Above is a screenshot of how I use it. Even included are badges displaying the unread count for Google Reader and Gmail.
I also use the New Tab Redirect extension for Chrome so it brings me to this page every time I open a new tab. Awesome!
I just launched the latest version of fav4.org, which has now been renamed to myfav.es.
New to this version:
- Ability to add more than 4 icons
- Pick from a batch of custom icons and assign url
- Choose icon colors (for custom icons)
- Pick any letter of the alphabet to use as icon (for Casey)
- New layout options
- Seamless transition from fav4.org (Remembers settings)
There is still lots of room to grow and a few bugs to fix, but I’m really happy with how this thing is evolving. As always I have to give HUGE props to Jack, whose JS wizardry makes it all possible.
Let me know any suggestions!
