Create a Custom Homepage in Seconds with ShinySearch

07Dec09

ShinySearch allows you to create a customized homepage with almost zero effort.  It comes loaded with links to most email services, social networking sites, news sites and popular Web destinations.

All you need to do is go to ShinySearch.com and select a theme and give it a name.   There’s no sign up and no need to enter in links to all of your favorite sites.

ShinySearch does have quite a few themes to choose from, but I want to note that I use the term “customized” loosely.  It appears that the only thing you can customize is the theme – which isn’t necessarily bad because it seems to have links to most sites that I visit regularly.  With that said, I would like to see the ability to remove sites that I don’t use and add ones that aren’t listed so that it is truly customized to my needs.
