Symbaloo – Start Simple – Web Desktop

I just ran across this site, Symbaloo, which is your personal desktop on the web. When you enter the site, you will see a black background with little 80×80 full or empty boxes. In each box you can add, delete, or eve move around your favorite sites. Each box will contain a small picture of your favorite site once you add it. I recommend registering because then you can take your bookmarks on the go and access your links from anywhere. When you click on one of the boxes with the site you want then in the center of the desktop there will be a small search section from that site. Also, The team of Symbaloo promises to keep the site free from banners, which is great. I love this site, so simple and productive.

Another plus is that if you are a webmaster then you can simple fill out a form to add your site to Symbaloo (make sure you have a picture or avatar of your site). Once you have sent that to the Symbaloo team, you have another feature to add the Symbaloo widget to your site so your readers, fans, and visitors can easily add you to their Symbaloo web desktop.

Not only that you get to add the sites you want at a click of a button, but Symbaloo also has a News Desktop and a RSS Desktop. They even give you the chance to add your own desktop if you ran out of room. You can add all your bookmarks or rss feeds no matter how many of them you have.

Here is the tour video for Symbaloo:

Your Personal Search Engine – Get Rolling

Rollyo offers you for free to make a personal search engine from the sources you trust in an easy and fast way. The reason I like Rollyo so much because it gives you all the features and freedom to make the search engine you have always wanted to have in one place. It lets you select all the engines you visit and they are put into one place. After you have finished your personal search engine, Rollyo can take you several steps further with its features. For instance there is sharing your searchrolls, searching YOUR top news sites and blogs, the RollBar Bookmarklet, the Roll a Firefox Search Engine, and much more. I really think that this is the best search engine that there is out there because you make it to fit your way of surfing the net.
