Here's a brief introduction if you're a new user

Hello, you are about to access our Icon Library to select your favourite sites as you create your new personal start page. We’ve added hundreds of popular icons in our library for you to choose from and we will continue adding more. If you would like to recommend something we missed please use the contribute form to let us know as we are very eager to make the most convenient internet tool available to you! One of the great things about our site is that if a particular icon is not yet available, you can still save it as a favourite using our text link feature.

Creating Your Page

Click "Get Started" to access our icon library, once inside you can simply select icons of choice by “Double Clicking” the icons of the websites you frequent most and they will be added to your start page favourite's toolbar.

Default Page Layout vs Themes

Once you’ve selected all your favourite icons from all the categories available, click “Save and Exit”, this will bring you to your new customized Start Page. You will arrive at our “Default template”. You can further customize your page with options such as adding text links, setting your default e-mail client, changing page layout colours and design themes and more. To access the control area click the “Page Settings” button on the top right corner of your page to access the user menu for available options.
