Website of the day: Symbaloo

A homepage that you can personalise isn’t exactly a new idea. You can do it in Google, Facebook, Twitter, anywhere really. But what if you want to take a step back and have something that houses all your other homepages?

The idea of tiles or icons whiclaunch your favourite apps is familiar to anybody with a smartphone and with symbaloo.com you get something a bit like that, but for your desktop.

You’ll need to create a free account, but once that’s done you can start gathering your online life together in one simple, elegant interface. Everything you use on a daily basis can be dragged and dropped to exactly where you need it.

Some of the icons will act like widgets, opening up a new box within the page. Others will take you to your websites. This is a nice way to personalise your web experience, by creating a virtual desktop that you can keep in sync wherever you are.
