Personalized thirts with your favorite websites

Simona Tshirt preview

If you want your favorite websites on your tshirt like my tshirt, just leave your comment with 5 favorite websites and I will send you the high resolution image with your websites for the tshirt. You then go to a tshirt printing service near you and there you have it. 

You can have your websites printed either on front or back, and you can still have your own message on the other side.

Sorting links problem in mootools 1.2

After a month of research, asking and trying to get help to solve the sorting links on fav20 , using Sortables, without them opening on release, after constant presure from users feedback about the sorting problem, I managed to find a solution on my own. 

Here is the solution

var stopsort = function(e){ e.stop(); }
var startsort = function(){ this.removeEvent(‘click’,stopsort); }



Google Chrome or Fav 2.0 ?

Google launched a new web browser: Chrome. When I tested it, I got scared because of the good new tab feature with most visited webpages easily accesible. I thought I was doomed with my fav20 project. But lets see what diffrences make fav20 still better then chrome:

Fav20 …

  1. isn’t browser depandable – can run on any browser, even on mobile
  2. doesn’t require instalation (plugin or program/new browser)
  3. You can have your favorite websites anywhere using the account, even tho you don’t need a fav20 account to use fav20.
  4. You can add/manage your most visited websites as you please, sort them, color them.
  5. You can launch most visited websites with one click !
I recommend Chrome as a web browser, but fav20 is still a lot better as a homepage.

First time on fav20?

If you are for the first time on fav20, I added a tooltip on top that lets you open a window to learn how to use it.

I think this will come in handy because most of the first time visits don’t know what is and how to use fav20.

You can always open the info window from the icon on fav20.

Review bookmark services

I asked a lot of people what bookmark services are they using. Most of them are:

All of them have pluses and minuses.

FireFox SpeedDial Plugin
highly customizable, -browser dependable, -requires instalation

limited(9 sites), -browser dependable, -requires instalation


no install and no registration required

Everybody can use any of the bookmark services above, most tech people will use FireFox plugin, but avarage user can find fav20 very simple to use and may love it, specialy now that he can move all his local saved pages to his account to access from any computer.

What bookmark service do you use and why ?
