Frequently Asked Questions
In case you were wondering...
1. What is Blinkdash?
It's a simple page that you can customize with your favorite links and search tools.
2. Why should I use this page?
Many other start pages are just a collection of distractions. Widgets, feeds, headlines, and games might seem nice, but a start page should help you get where you want to go instead of tempting you into distractions that can waste hours of your time. Blinkdash is for people who think a start page should be a launchpad, not an obstacle.
