Symbaloo is an online based platform that allows users to organize, categorize and store their preferred or most visited websites on one page. Similar to a browser’s homepage it enables you to save websites you visit often or pages with content you wish to check later.

Evaluation: Unlike a regular homepage of a browser, Symbaloo allows you to categorize and create pages with bookmarked websites, according to their content. For instance, you can list all your “News” websites on one side of the screen and on the other all your preferred “Shopping” websites. Symabloo is quick and easy to use and its layout is more easily searchable than a regular browser homepage.

Cost: Free with registration. Paid premium options.
