START is a utility that you can use, completely free of charge, as a homepage in your browser. It helps you to link to your favourite search engine, and even adding useful shortcuts for efficient use.
In this first version the default Google search engine is used. Soon you will be able to configure which search engine to use.
You also have shortcuts in the search field. For example, to go to Twitter, just type it in and you will go directly to Twitter without having to go through ineffective searches. These kinds of wildcards will be expanded in different versions of Start.
Most of the time, on the internet, if something is free, you are the product. That's not the case with START.
We do not collect any of your personal information. And we have also chosen not to embed advertising. But we do get funding to maintain this utility (or intend to). How? There are certain links, which when accessed from START include an affiliate code. You will not be affected in any way, and no information will be collected from you. For example, if you access certain online shops from Start, we will include our affiliate code so that the shop will earn us a commission. But it will cost you the same. We just tell the site in question that we have taken you there.
But soon, you will be able, completely anonymously, without registration or anything else, to configure many aspects of START.
From including quick links to 'famous' sites to utilities that will help you copy and paste text between your devices and much more that we will be coming up with.
If you can and want to, you can help us make this utility grow and not include advertising or paid services.
If you like START, and you can afford it, will you help us with a euro?
