Evolution of the Personal Homepage
Yesterday Frostfire announced the launch of Frostfirehive.com, a personal homepage application that’s initially designed to target Internet and technology users. Much like the way you can customize your Google homepage, Frostfirehive.com allows users to create personalized start pages. But, it also takes things a few steps further, making it easy to organize your news, websites, videos, games, photos, search engines, email and much more.
“We will see a move away from generic start pages as niches need guidance with their content. Single page aggregators are too rigid and generic customizable pages offer little help to users. The Frostfirehive.com default start page consists of basic instructions that can be removed once a user is familiar with the site,” said Chris Frost, Frostfirehive.com’s chief executive.
Frostfirehive.com can be accessed from anywhere and is designed to provide users with a quick look of everything happening on the web. The default (27) feeds are targeted more towards technology and Internet buffs but can easily be customized to allow users to add any personality they want into their own homepage. You can edit the options of your feeds to include number of headlines and frequency of content refresh, and you even have your choice of many widgets.
“We will shortly be encouraging users to share their creations and attract third party developers to increase our depth of widgets. Offering social interaction is crucial to the future of Frostfirehive.com as this will provide users with guidance for their personal pages from people they can trust. This social networking will benefit the users and the community,” said Frost.
