3 Worthy Alternatives to iGoogle For Personalized Homepages

If you're anything like us, your browser's homepage has remained set to www.google.com since-well, long enough you probably don't remember using anything else, well, at least till I founded Genieo.com

For those of you who are not sure what a home page or start page is, the page that pops up when you start your browser is your home/start page.

Some of you like to be more productive while they are browsing the web, so instead of using a blank Google search page they do prefer a smart and easy way to catch up with their online life.

My personal favorites and the one I highly recommend is www.genieo.com it's for the first time I can really enjoy a great personalization technology provides as many different sources of information based on my browsing behaviors and publish material for other people to see. However, if you'd like to try some alternatives, here they are:

 

U  

The U browser is a new web browser that lets you do more while you browse. It is based on the Chromium open-source project, which means it gives you very fast, very safe browsing.  

That means you don’t have to click away from the site you’re surfing to chat with friends, read Tweets, update your Facebook status, or watch your favorite videos. Just do all that on the U browser’s sidebar or chat windows, while you continue to surf on the main screen.

Genieo

A tiny desktop application that generates the first start page using your past browsing history and site preferences as a stepping stone. Genieo is on auto-pilot, is great for the guy who doesn’t have the patience to sit and manually configure a start page on his own.  

After the installation process your personal homepage will appear in your browser, and the fun begins. You will discover several topics based on your interested in and several sites that you read most often. In addition, it listed the sites that typically provide the best content on your preferred topics, friends' birthdays from Facebook and mentions of your favorite topics from Twitter.

Genieo is worth a place in the browser. It allows for setting up an easy, fast, and secure personal start page.


Lumi

Every time you visit Lumi you'll see a fresh selection of suggested web pages based on your visit data. Lumi’s concept is very similar to Genieo. New pages will be displayed in real time and stay relevant based on the visit data you are recording with the Lumi chrome extension. To make Lumi work best you should install the extension that allows you to record your visit data to let Lumi know what you are interested in.

It also makes starring pages simple. Personally, I chose Genieo as my homepage as it brings better results based on all my internet activities and keep my privacy. Well, there are few more reasons you should already know by now…

A Personalized Newspaper Styled Homepage: Cutting the Web Down to Size.
We are interested in a service that learns our preferred topics, trusted sources and how we find and read information on the web. Genieo presents you with content you're certain to like, without any scripting or filtering from you, the user.

What you can also find interesting about Genieo is that it has this tendency to pull in stories from sites that you might not have otherwise visited. While there are stories presently showing from your favorite sources, there are some great content pop in from other sites that you’ve never been to, as well. Oh, and if something pops up that you don’t like, you can flag it as not interesting or remove the feed from the specific site entirely.
