Portalbella is a creative way to save bookmarks to frequently browsed websites by creating a custom browser start page. Bookmarks are displayed in menus, which you can have up to 6 of and 10 bookmarks in each menu...that's 60 bookmarks! This is ideal for separating bookmarks by grade levels for schools, by subjects, or by specific topics. You can then upload any image as your background to really customize your start page. Every page has the convenience of Google Search built in!
The great thing about Portalbella, is that you can save your Portalbella start page as the default browser home page on as many computers as you like! You are then able to login to your account at any time and edit your page by adding or removing bookmarks, changing your background, and editing your colors, which will replicate to every computer that you use your Portalbella start page on. You can use any computer, anywhere in the world, at any time, and have access to all your bookmarks from your custom start page!
Yes, Portalbella is 100% free and always will be. I created Portalbella because I knew I could benefit from the convenience of having my own custom start page with all the bookmarks that I frequently access on the internet at the click of a mouse, and I thought that everyone else could benefit from this as well.
I love launching my browser now and seeing my own personal home page and I hope you will too!
I've done my best to make Portalbella as user friendly as possibly, but am always open to ways of improving the site. I wanted anyone from the age of 5 to 105 to be able to build their own home page with ease.
After you register with Portalbella, it's three easy steps to build your home page. You can literally have your new page up and going in under 2 minutes, seriously!
There are many browser out there so I will give you a quick tutorial on the 4 most popular, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome.
Internet Explorer 7,8, and 9: On the toolbar, click "Tools" and select "Internet Option". With the "General Tab" selected, you will see "Home Page". Paste your url in there.
Firefox: On the toolbar, click "Tools" and select "Options". In the "Main" options paste your url in the "Home Page" box.
Safari: On the toolbar, click "Edit" and select "Preferences". With the "General Tab" selected, you will see "Home Page". Paste your url there and then click the "Set to Current Page". A message box will appear, select "Change Home Page".
Chrome: On the toolbar, click the "Wrench" icon and select "Options". With the "Basics" tab selected, under "Home page", select "Open this page" and paste your url there.
Portalbella has been tested and works with all current web browsers.
With that said, if you are using Internet Explore 6, IE6, this is not considered a current web browser. Some aspects of Portalbella may not render correctly in outdated web browsers. If you are currently using IE6, I would highly recommend upgrading to the latest version of IE.
Editing your start page is a super easy process.
If you are already a registered user, then all you have to do is go to theor click on the "Edit My Home Page" at the bottom of your menu on your start page. Once logged in, use the navigation menu in the body of the page to change settings in your "My Account", "My Links", or "My Background". After you have made your changes you can then click on "My Home Page" to view your updated changes!
