Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 4, 2008 -
Upstart samfind - launches a customizable startpage that puts the handiest websites on the web at user's fingertips. Unlike Google, Yahoo and MSN's static homepages, that only offer access to their proprietary services, samfind's customizable startpage gives users the freedom to choose the websites to which they have instant access.
"We believe the big three have it wrong, but they can't help it because they have to promote their own services. We can be agnostic and let users choose the services that are best in class instead of promoting 'our services,'" says Sam Deskin, founder of samfind. "We democratize the startpage. Essentially, anybody can choose which services they think are the best and keep them a click away."
On samfind's uncluttered and advertisement-free startpage users start with topics including search, news, maps, email, banking, blogging and shopping and with some of the most popular websites in each of these topics. Users can easily remove any of these topics and add any topics or websites they choose. Hundreds of the most popular websites are already setup on samfind and adding others is as easy as typing in the URL.
samfind's unique approach to the startpage threatens the dominance of Google, Yahoo, and MSN as the entry point to the web because users are now able to completely control the websites to which they have instant access.
