Personal Homepage

Personal homepages are popping up all over the place from companies like Google and Netvibes but has one really unique feature. First off it is a little different from the classic offerings of Google and Netvibes because this has more of a widget appearance. You can drag items around and place them wherever you want on the screen instead of having the standard column layout. Tab View does offer tabs like many other personal homepages but it has one option that I have not seen anywhere else. In the upper-right corner of the screen you’ll see a transparent cube-like shape like the one pictured to the right. Clicking on that will take you to a grid view that displays thumbnails of all your tabs on one single page. This is very similar to the Foxpose extension for Firefox except this is only for your personalized homepage. Is that not special enough for you yet? Well, each view is actually interactive and you can re-position or move modules from one tab to another simply by dragging and dropping them.

I won’t be leaving Netvibes for this service but the multi-tab view is amazing. I love being able to drag-n-drop modules across tabs and being able to rearrange them without ever leaving that view. Maybe other companies will start to see the usefulness of this feature and create their own version.
