Pageflakes vs YourMinis

Suddenly today i started to explore the features and uses of Pageflakes and was searching for few Add-on Extensions of FireFox v2.0. What i discovered was interesting to me. There is a website called Yourminis ( which is launched very recently and mostly similar to PageFlakes ( Now let me talk about them individually and i let you all to judge who is faster and who is better? No personal attack but it's just a post :)

Pageflakes was founded in October 2005 by Christoph Janz, Omar AL Zabir, Ole Braundenburg and Shahedul Huq Khandkar. We're still a small company, but people from four continents work for Pageflakes. So at any time somewhere someone is working to make your experience with Pageflakes even better! Read about Pageflakes.

Now just after
1 year! yourminis is in the field to compete with pageflakes., launched in October, 2006 is a property of goowy media, inc. ( goowy was started in mid 2004 in San Diego, California, by 4 friends (Alex Bard, Gary Benitt, Jeremy Suriel and Sashi Bommakanty) who have worked and played together for the last 10 years. Read about Yourminis.

Lets study on it more.. This is true that Pageflakes is running since October 2005 and according to the expectation they must be even more matured then Yourminis.

Now Pageflakes has another competitor in his area. Who will be his 1st competent? Google, Yahoo, Microsoft (GYM) ? Or goowy's newly launched Yourminis (

Thanks for the mention...I really believe we offer a more immersize environment than the other start pages...we offer you a lot more flexibility with how you create your dashboards (look at some of these,,,, etc.)

In addition we offer a browser plugin that gives you yourminis in heads up mode over any page and also gives you a series of 1 click options for adding videos from youtube, photos from all of the major providers, friends from the social networks, microformats, rss feeds and much more.

Finally we let you publish pages and are launching a community around publishing that will be very unique - think youtube but around tabs!

Thanks for your support!

Pageflakes allows publishing pages too. And also the setup of templates and shared pages. The plugin that you mentioned is a nice feature though, well done.
