    I experimented a bit before leaving

    I tried a few things but didn't find it useful

    I found it useful but I'll wait until it's finished

    It's missing some important features

    I'll wait until I can register domains

    I'll wait until I can customize a homepage

    It's too complicated for me

    I'm going to see how things develop

This is a work in progress. I am looking to see what people think of the basic ideas behind this page, and what is to come for it.

http://www.azoundria.com/ismywebsite/index2.php

If you're not sure what to put answer any of these...
1) Is it obvious how to use the go bar?
2) Is everything working on your browser?
3) If my page was your browser's homepage, would it be easier than going to those different sites and using them seperately?
4) Would you use this? What might it need?
5) Any tasks you use that I'm missing?
6) Are the domains a good idea?

I don't know if a mod can fix this but the first option I entered was 'I got as far as the design before leaving' and it changed it to say what the second one was. And it wont let me change it.

BTW, I also have the domain ismywebsite.com registered as a redirect. So when you register domains you'll get the url ismywebsite.com?d=something

If you don't want to answer the questions its fine you can tell me anything.

1) Is it obvious how to use the go bar?

go bar? what go bar?

2) Is everything working on your browser?

everything seems to be working fine.
3) If my page was your browser's homepage, would it be easier than going to those different sites and using them seperately?
I dont understand... are you a redirecting service?

4) Would you use this? What might it need?
I would consider using it. if it was easier to navigate and had a clear purpose

5) Any tasks you use that I'm missing?
possibly get an advertising space?

6) Are the domains a good idea?

I dont see why not. as long as your bringing enough traffic in.

My opinion. the site is clean. simple design. possibly too simple. the purpose of your website needs to be more obvious. noone is going to surf the site just to find out what it is. Needs to be easier to navigate. overall 5/10

The go bar is the list on the left and the input in the middle. When you click Google Web and type something in the bar it submits it to google search. Anyone of Dot__ such as DotNet will add the sufex of .net to the search so if you type in dreamincode it will take you to dreamincode.net.

SpooF got it figured out! Anything I could do to make it more obvious what everything is?

I don't think NetMaster read the writing? Is it too long.

Should I say I offer 3 services and list the go bar as one the first one?

To answer NetMaster's question, yes I redirect to other sites based on what task you use and what terms you enter. It would be simpler to say I give access to all the best tools of the web from this site!

A task is a site that offers a service to you when you enter information, such as Wikipedia or Google. You can enter the information on my site and it will forward you there.

I see noone is using the poll...

I see a couple of you selected that you did not know what to do on the page or you did not find it useful. Could you suggest any way I could improve this? Is there a better way I could explain what it does or some way to make it more obvious or useful?

Update:
I am adding/fixing tasks. Affected or new tasks include:
File Extension, Typepad, Thesaurus.com, Dictionary.com, AOL, AOL Pictures, DotAu, Ebay, Dictionary, Domain Check, Domain Name, Domain Whois, AllTheWeb, Ask Jeeves Web, Ask Jeeves Images, Ask Jeeves News, Ask Jeeves Shopping, Ask Jeeves Maps, Amazon, Excite, CompUSA, BestBuy, DotCc

There are still tons on the way. Any ideas are appreciated. If someone could test a few of the tasks out...

Update:
Fixed more tasks and added a go bar to the top of pages you visit.
