Curate Your Favorite Web Destinations Visually with Wibki

Robin Good's insight:



Wibki is a free web app which allows you to easily organize a series of visual "start pages" from which to access your favorite web sites, resources and apps.


Wibki does an excellent job of making it very easy to add and edit new sites to your visual start pages, and it automatically fetches the logo of each one.


You can create as many "start pages" (or tabs) as you like, so that you can keep your favorite web sites organized into different thematic categories. Individual cells can be easily edited, removed or dragged nto different positions.



My comments: An excellent tool to keep and organize in a handy way your favorite web sites. The web site icons and the simple and clean organization make this apparently simple visual bookmarking tool a very effective start page builder and web destinations manager. 


Free to use.


In private beta.

@Robin Good I never thought about the social aspect and that is relevant enough to make it useful for that aspect.
Tyler Wall's comment, September 20, 2013 3:25 PM
@Robin Good As far as the links all you have to do is bookmark it to your bookmark bar and then navigate to teh tab page and drag that link (in your bookmark bar) to the page and it adds it. Not exactly straightforward but it is simple and works.

@Tyler Wall: thank you for clarifying this to me. I was scratching my head quite a bit to find a way to do it. Got it now. ...and glad to have been of help in surfacing the importance of the social sharing aspect.

Create a personal startpage with your most important bookmarks and RSS feeds. Easy to use, reliable and completely (ad) free. Read more...
Robin Good's insight:



StartMe is an excellent free start page builder which allows anyone to create public (or private) start pages containing bookmarks, links and RSS feeds, organized in groups and easily editable.


StartMe creates clutter-free, well designed and highly scannable editable start pages where you can easily add, edit, move around and re-order and group your favorite links and bookmarks in any way you want.


You can create as many start pages as you want and you can choose to start either from a pre-populated links and feeds page that can be edited and customized or completely from scratch.


Groups and individual items (links and RSS feeds) can be easily edited and dragged around easily. It is possible to decide how many news stories appear in a feed list and you can even switch on a "river of news" option that will combine chronologically all the news of a list of feeds.


It is also possible to integrate a search engine for each start page that will search using your search engine of choice.


StartMe supports OPML allowing full export and import functions with any bookmark collection or RSS feeds list.


Extension for Firefox and Google Chrome are available.


My comment: I can't recommend this tool enough. Easy, fast, effective and elegant. It's a breeze to use and it's so damn useful for creating start pages for a thousand different uses: tools lists organized in groups, suggested sites to visit subdivided in sub-topics, collections of people profiles in specific sectors, etc.  


Ad free.


Free to use.
