In conclusion, it is interesting to see how myhomepage is targeting internet users. The website focuses on helping people organize their online work and life. It has a lot of benefits, the biggest two being it is online and it offers auto login for selected websites. These two features make it stand out from the rest of the crowd because a lot of services in this area work through your browser which unfortunately means you can't access them from another computer or a different browser. With myhomepage you can access all your bookmarks from work, school or home.
The website does have a few areas it could improve. Firstly, more sites for the auto login would be great - perhaps a way to train the system when it comes across new websites with a login form rather than having to email them. It would also be great if there was more customization involved – specifically on the personalized homepage. A great idea would involve more social features – rating public bookmarks, seeing the most popular bookmarks etc. Overall, myhomepage is a very good web service. It will be interesting to see how they develop further and what new features they will implement. You should check it out if you have a hard time organizing your bookmarks and online work. It's completely free and enjoyable.
