I'd like to drag and drop website/pages to reorder them, delete them (by dragging off) and add them by draggin on from the location bar.

I'd like to add new tabs like in protopage to better split the website.

I'd like to add categories.

That's my starter for ten!

I'd like to resize the web pages so that, for example, the more important pages take up more real estate and vice versa.

They should be dynamic and update accordingly

Great looking site and I can't wait to try it.

One problem: I just don't like creating accounts with sites that don't have a clear privacy policy.

Even a "We Don't Spam" pledge on the account creation page is good enough (for me, at least).

Excellent site. My only request is that links open in new windows. At least this should be a preference option. In my case Firefox automatically opens tabs for new windows, making this a great feature.

I may be an ant fu***r, but I noticed spelling error on the Tour page:

Automatic Snapshot

Beta indeed - it looks nice, and I love the concept, but everything keeps disappearing and changing - and I can't even delete one of my entries!

Try again - it's still a good idea.

1. I noticed that when you add too many tabs, the tabs start on the next line below, but then they push the preiview boxes across which looks a bit weird. It would be great to have the tab line made wider (for those with widescreens!) or make it look better on the second line, without pushing out a preview window.

2. It would be great to see drag and drop added.

3. if this could integrate with foxmarks/normal bookmarks, to creat new tabs from folders, and automatically add all the bookmarks inside that folder, inside the tab.

looks like a great start!

Excellent idea for a site! I've been looking for something as simple as this for a while. I seem to be have a problem... whenever I make a new tab it won't let me add pages to it. Also, I think it might be a little too simple right now, but that's completely understandable; you are in beta still. :)

The tabs now work wonderfully! I did notice there's still a problem when they wrap to the next line. I simply made my Category names shorter, so they wouldn't wrap. But, yah, it's still saying that there's an error whenever trying to add a site to the tabs on the second line. Thanks for fixing the tabs so quickly!

It would be cool to be able to move pages/links to a different tab, instead of deleting then readding on another tab.

This would be especially useful as I add more links. When I started, I only had a couple of "Money" links. Now, I have enough to fill a tab...

July 22, 2007 3:08 PM  
Anonymous J said...

Also, it would be nice to have the "picture" of the page be different from the actual URL. For example, if I had a page that had a plain login page, I might want the "picture" to point to the main page.

This would be helpful for things like some webmail clients that do not have enough detail to be distinguishable from others, and even pages that do not/might not render correctly with SnapShot's engine...

(It might be important to note if the URL is different from the pic, with a diagonal blue line or something...)

Whenever I use the drag-and-drop interface to arrange the order of websites, as soon as I finish moving one, it directs me to that site. When I try to navigate back, all of the sites are back to their default locations. Why not allow users to arrange them in any order?

This is a winner! You guys are going to do very well with this. Great implementation on a much needed tool!

Only one issue noted (I signed up a few minutes ago).

1. [A-Z] Issue:
When adding a link, the [A-Z] option does not work properly. If I use a lowercase letter (a-z), it appears after all upper case letters (A-Z).

From now on, I'll use lower-case letters for all names but since this is being targetted to the "masses", it should be fixed.

Other important issues:

1. I agree with the user who mentioned your privacy policy. Even among newbies, this is important. Aside from "No Spam", will this site in any way be building User Profiles (based on links) to sell to advertisers? If no, this should also be stated clearly in the Privacy Policy section.

I know the system isn't setup for displaying local pages, just wanted to point the following out. The links on URLs like these:

Opera local format - file://localhost/C:/path/index.htm

Firefox local format: file:///localhost/C:/path/index.htm

Do not work at all (using Opera).

Maybe as a feature request, in the area where new links are added - there can be a checkbox that tells the system it's a local file. Image capture would be turned off in these cases (or defaulted to a standard image).

I like the new drag and drop feature. Not to be too picky, but it would be even more cool if you could drag the links into different tabs. Currently when you make a link it seems to be stuck in the tab it was created.

2) thumbnail size options (small, med, large at least, slider pref)

3) highlight thumbnail border / page with color on mouseover for selection clarity

4) rating star system for each thumbnail

5) be able to share tab(s) with other member(s)

6) lock option - so thumbnails do not get drag and dropped accidently

7) be able to drag an http address entry from any browser into any tab and rename as necessary.

Hey, it's a very good idea but I have a very strange problem with only2clicks. So, when I create account and trying to open my personal page - the internet connection is broken and my ADSL-modem is make reboot. I tried it in Windows and Linux, Opera and Firefox - the result is one only: I loosing my internet connection.

Odd bug while using Opera's password manager...

When I access and using Opera via your links (automatically open in new tab/window), the built-in password manager (wand) does not work. I have to reload the Yahoo and Gmail pages in order to get Opera's password manager to recognize the site (and load my list of username/passwords).

I hope you guys are familiar with and also test Opera but in case you're not, some additional info...

On Yahoo/Google, I maintain a couple of accounts (biz/personal). When I access the login pages, Opera's wand highlights (informing me that I saved user/pass info). I click on the wand and a popUp box opens up. I click on the name and it automatcally enters my login info.

The wand is not highlighting when I access these two sites via your links and will only do so after I reload the Yahoo/Gmail pages. I also tested hotmail ( No issues with this third one. Thanks.

I just came across an idea while surfing... I know you've got a lot to work on right now, but maybe you could put in the ideas list for future upgrades: I think it would be cool to have a "Search" tab that would simply have search boxes from whatever websites you want. For instance, when you click on the "Search" tab it would have a search box for Google,, and Wikipedia. I just think it would add to the whole "only 2 clicks" idea; it would be a faster way to search a specific site or search engine.

Hi Guys!

Don't know if this has been said but I think a form of very simple RSS feeds would be nice. I have a page for webcomics and blogs and it would be nice if, when I click on a button for example, an expanding box would show the RSS feed. That way I could see if it has been updated quickly.

Great job by the way, I'm having lots of fun with this!

I think Lars was asking for a bookmarklet that would let you add pages to your only2clicks page from anywhere on the net. Say you're on a site you realize you like a lot. You simply click on a bookmark on your bookmarks toolbar that takes you to the add page on only2clicks with the info already added. Or it gives you the option of what tab to add it to. Or both. :) I'm pretty sure this would require JavaScript from other bookmarklets I've seen.

I'm using Firefox (latest version) and when I drag the 'home' icon on your page to my 'home' icon on my browser, it only stored the little picture .png of the house as the home page. So when I tried to pull up my home page it showed only that little picture.

Problem #2 is that when I pulled up your site, all the pages I saved Yesterday are gone today! Bummer...

Problem #3 this is really an opinion... When you add a site, I don't think it helps at all that you start filling it out with 'http://www.' everyone just has to erase that text after they paste the website they want into it. I can add a page by dragging the tab down to the 'add site' box, but that may be a function of a Firefox extension dragdropupload.

You've got a tiger by the tail with this site. I think you should really pump some money into it and hire someone to polish it off or users are going to get tired of these little gotcha's. It is a beta period but you were mentioned in PC Week's 100 most under appreciated web sites and that should drive a lot of people to your site very quickly.

I wrote an article on your site on my blog. I did mention that the 2 firefox extensions 'showcase' and 'speed dial' were the original ideas. I don't know if you are the same person or not but the web site is a much more functional idea and could be a much better tool than the Firefox extensions. I think you should get the site really polished so users don't come and then leave because we are all coming now and if we leave, I'm sure, someone else will come up with a site that will accomplish the same thing and you will have lost your market. Just my opinion...

Great site ya'll! I would like to make one suggestion: Can you please make a basic 'export' function that would send a dump of all the links in one's account to a text/html file?

This way, users could feel comfortable throwing ALL of their bookmarks onto your site without having to worry about the site crashing, or going under (etc) since we would have a way to have a *backup copy* of all of the links.

Thanks again for such a great service!

Help (I don't know if this is the place but here goes).

I created an account and blissfully went about putting together a number of pages with my favorite sites. I enjoyed using the service on my desktop machine for the past week or so. I then decided to access the servicw from my laptop, but got a "login error". After a few tries, to make sure I hadn't simply forgotten my password, I requested that my registration info be sent to me by email. A few days later, i have not received anything.

Back to the desktop machine: no problem. But then, being an experimentor, I decided to see if I could login on my notebook if I logged off the desktop. To be certain that I really knew my password, I created a new one. Then I logged off the desktop and tried to log on to the notebook. No luck. But even worse, I could not log back on to the desktop.

So I have a great set of pages and can no longer use only2clicks to access them. As I said, "HELP!"

My contact info is bobwillard AT worldnet dot att dot net and that is the identifier I created my account with. Thanks. -Bob

thanks... use this everyday!

Sub folders please. I'm building up a massive collection of categories and really need to group some within others. I really think this would make only2clicks the best application to use. I reckon you'll lose a lot of people eventually if you don't implement this.
