Nesting.com (beta) is an online community where parents (Moms particularly) can organize and connect aspects of their family’s daily life.

“Nesting.com is more than a social networking site – it’s a personal assistant that helps you keep on top of every detail of your busy family life. Our innovative tools are fully customizable, and tasks that used to take days now only take minutes. Most social networking sites are primarily about meeting new people. But we know that parents are busy, and it’s more important for them to stay connected with their existing social network of people that are already in their lives, rather than create an entirely new group of people that they need to keep in touch with.” [Nesting.com]

The free service is similar in concept with Pageflakes and iGoogle.

URL-info.appspot.com is an online tool that lets you get the data from header files produced by the web servers.

“URLinfo is a tool for handling web pages: finding information about it, finding headers, internal and external links, etc. To use it, type a URL (web page address) into the box in the top frame.” [URL-info]

By entering a web address, the service returns information about:

  • Page – HTTP status, URL scheme specifier, web analytics, etc.
  • HTTP Headers – Last modified, cache control, server, pingback, etc.
  • Images
  • Links – internal and external

And you also are provided with a Flash analog clock (upper right hand side). A nice bonus while you read the info about your chosen address.

MySurfPad.com is an online startup page that features tabbed categorization.

“MySurfPad.com was born out of a personal frustration of having to visit numerous web pages to access my information and tools. In designing the site, we wanted to create a layout where we could consolidate the best of my favorite links and basic tools on one page for easy, efficient access. The site continued to evolve from having news, tools and search engines to incorporating live international TV/radio, games and hundreds of other useful modules, turning MySurfPad.com into a search, news and entertainment epicenter.” [MySurfPad]

Categories include:

  • Search (Calendar, Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Wikipedia, Bookmarks)
  • News
  • Email+ (Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, MySpace, Facebook, and Yahoo/MSN/AIM chat)
  • Tools (Vital Stats, G Finder, World Time, Stop Watch, Dictionary, PDF Converter)
  • Music/TV
  • Fun
  • Travel

Worth checking out if you like making use of configurable online startup pages.
