This is what I write about on RazvanGirmacea.com
First time on fav20?
Review bookmark services
I asked a lot of people what bookmark services are they using. Most of them are:
- FireFox Speed Dial Plugin
- Opera (has a speed dial)
- and I made Fav20 – why ? read bellow
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 ?
You can now drag the Add to Fav20 bookmarklet to you Firefox Toolbar (or Right click -> add to favorites in Internet Explorer) to faster add the website you are viewing, without leaving your current page.
You can find the bookmarklet on footer of fav20.
Browser: How to change homepage
If you want to change your browser, it usualy depends if you are using Internet Explorer, FireFox, Opera or other, but usualy it can be found on: Tools -> Options (Internet options) -> Main (General Tab).
You can set there any homepage you like. New browsers (FF2,3 + IE7) support more than one homepage (that will open in new tabs).
A hint is for you to try http://www.fav20.com as your homepage.
Google Pagerank Toolbar Update July 2008
Matt Cutt announces that new Google PageRank will be updated the following days ( 25 July 2008) . You can only view the updated PageRank in Google Toolbar.
No changes for my site yet, PageRank 4.
Color tags for individual sites
On fav20, for users I added a new feature. You can change the tag color of a site to see it better or organize better (usefull if you have many sites). You can click to change color of the tag. There are 4 colors: blue, red, green, yellow. You can click more times untill you choose the best color or choose none.
Fav20 users ready!
You can not now register on fav20 and save your websites anywhere.
To login fast just enter the following url:
If you already used fav20, you can click the on the top right to copy all saved websites from cookies to your account. More features will be added soon. Report any bugs please.
Don’t forget you can test the users with http://www.fav20.com/demodemo , password: demo
Fav20 user accounts!
I know a lot of you are waiting for the account feature, where you can have your favorite websites anywhere.
I have made a test account:
Note that anyone can add/delete anything they want there to test. Feedback here (comment) is appreciated.
I will work this days on the code, so if problems while you test come back in few minutes and test again.
Bonus features that accounts will have in the near future:
- Copy local saved websites to the account (websites will be saved on server);
- Unlimited number of websites (currently cookies are limited to 4k size ~ 40 websites).
- Clear interface (remove unnecessary explaining text and icons)
Other futures that will come:
- Categories/tabs (organize your websites in tabs)
- Open all marked websites (mark some websites that you want to open in one click)
- Some kind of socializing/interaction between users (still thinking of it)
