Fav4: A Simple Customizable Social Networking Start Page

Fav4 is a service that allows you to customize a start page for your browser. The page displays four (4) websites of your choice and is presented in the simplest way possible. The website is cookie based so you don’t need to create an account in order to use the website and save your settings after customizing.

Instead of bookmarking your favorite website, which also works by the way, you can simply select four of your favorite social networking site or web service from Fav4’s list. If your favorite website does not appear on Fav4’s list, you can always offer a suggestion to make the site work better for you. You can also check out their pending suggested websites page to see if your favorite is already included in their list to avoid double posting.

Displaying only four websites on a start page is not for everyone but it’s a cool website nonetheless. The huge 70 x 70 icons are hard to miss plus it makes your start page look nice and clean. Plus, you can access each site using your keyboard by pressing 1234 or asdf and c to bring up the config panel.  Check out the introductory video below.

    Fav4 looks nice, but only four links – you might as well make have them as link buttons on your bookmark toolbar. I like zenstart – it has a search box and the top 150 links:
