By on June 30th, 2010

Welcome to Webby Wednesdays - a brief compilation of some web services which we found useful during the course of this week.

Favitt – Get a Customized Browser Start Page

Tired of searching multiple sites from different browser tabs? Do you want an all in one interface where you can just type the query and the results from all the search engines can be seen from   a single page? Check out Favitt, a neat web service which lets you create your customized browser start page for free.

Favitt lets you customize your search experience and add some flavour to your daily searches. After you have signed up for a free account, you can add all the popular websites, search engines, blogs or news sources as tabs on your start page.

Typing a keyword and hitting the return key shows a list of results from Google. However, if you want to perform the same search on any other website – all you have to do is select the tab from the left sidebar.

The search results from the selected site will now load on the same page. This is very useful, you don’t have to open multiple search engines and perform the same search separately.

Another great thing about Favitt is the way you can customize your browser start page. You can add links to your most visited websites, social networking sites, blogs and so on. You can also upload some really good wallpapers and Favitt will automatically rotate them at a custom interval. Cool!

Cl1p: Use an Internet Clipboard For Data Sharing

If you work with multiple computers at your workplace, you know how difficult it can be to share Windows clipboard data between them. If the systems are connected via LAN, then you can use a text document to share Windows clipboard data easily.

However, if you use multiple computers that are not connected via LAN, check out Cl1P.net. It’s a free web service which lets you share clipboard data with anyone. All you have to do is go to the homepage, append some random string at the end of the URL (e.g http://cl1p.net/test1) and then paste the data in the provided text box.

Next, you can open the same URL from any other computer and copy the data in it’s clipboard.
