Make your own Startpage

Having recently started using Pageflakes, for among other things aggregating various elearning feeds, I've discovered the world of Ajax. Not a former brand of bathroom cleaner, but a Web development technique for creating interactive applications. (Ajax stands for Asynchronous JavaScript And XML.)

This is a way of creating interactive web applications. The technology means that small amounts of data can be exchanged with the server behind the scenes, meaning not everything has to be reloaded each time the user makes a change. The intent being to enhance the Web page's interactivity, speed, and usability. 3spots has an excellent listing of Startpages (ie users make their own startpage using tools such as pageflakes, Netvibes, goowy,, etc); Non-English Startpages; and Drag and drop applications.

It's like having a webpage feederreader, but with extra tools, such as calendars, notes, translators, to-do lists, and so on. So it can be accessed anywhere.
