A Very Nice Hidden Speed Dial Application To Launch Your Favorite Bookmarks

I not sure how I even happened onto this, but if you go to “www.topsites.me” you can sign up for FREE  (very nice) speed dial utility that will allow you to add your favorite bookmarks. Below is the speed dial I created with various categories, as a sample.

After finding this hidden speed dial (not really promoted anywhere), I did some further research. This speed dial utility is managed by Nimbus Web Inc. who are the developers of Nimbus Note, Nimbus Clipper, and Nimbus Capture. They also are the developers of a very popular speed dial utility, similar to what I found, but is actually a browser extension called FVD Speed Dial. After digging further, Nimbus also has a sync utility that sync’s the speed dial (called Eversync Everhelper) that if installed allows you to manage your speed dial pages and back them up. I also found that the same sync utility works with the browser extension (FVD Speed Dial) as well, which leads me to believe (have not tested) that I could sync the speed dial I created to the one associated with the browser extension. Now that this is all clear as mud, I have been experimenting with the speed dial I created at “www.topsites.me” and have found it so far, after about a month’s usage to be very reliable.  I also installed the Everysync Everhelper client that allows me to manage the tiles and perform backups. Also, you can add your own background images to the speed dial and in my case, I am using a Weather Channel static map image that routinely changes with updated weather.
