"a visually overwhelming approach of presenting the most relevant websites ..."

Overwhelming, yes. Most relevant websites? Where's MeFi? (it could be there, I was just visually overwhelmed).

OK, I'll bite. Why?

You can type out pretty much any URL in half the time it takes to find the link you want in that mess.

What kind of idiot squishes logos?

If you don't have a logo, you don't exist.

Looks cool though. Will click again.

The funny thing is that just the other day I was wondering if there was a website that could show someone virtually every corporate logo known to man. I meant to go look for just such a site but as I often do, I was distracted by... well, life.

But this FPP not only made me remember that I mean to conduct such a search, but saved me from having to even do the search in the first place! So thanks signal! Nice post!

Lycos? Somebody still uses that?

Their slogan is "All My Faves".

Except it doesn't have my favourites. It has their favourites.

If it had my favourites, there would only need to be about 6 or 7 logos. Let's count...Australian ABC, Achewood, Metafilter, del.icio.us, Google, Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Flickr. In which case I might as well put together the world's simplest webpage and make it my start page.

Or shit, use my browser's bookmark toolbar.

Effigy2000, you really should check out logotypes.ru.

Err, you mean people still don't do that?

*looks sheepishly at blue, white and purple plaintext HTML home page loaded with links collected over the years*

Ooo, hey, it's still threat level "Ernie/Bert". *sigh* I probably should delete that link to Mirsky's.

Well, I can never seem to make up my mind what my start page should be, and never really got around to doing a comprehensive and useful blue-white-and-purple one.

Is it hopelessly sad that I got a little nostalgic seeing the HotBot logo again for the first time in eight years? Oh... it is?

nevermind.

I'm pretty sure I've seen something like this before. Except neater. And without the logos. And it was a dozen years ago.

I have and I like. Thanks to you, also!

The banality and lack of originality in web service offerings is what emerges from this project for me. So many logos, so little of interest. Same old same old boring web.

Don't tell these guys about MeFi. Maybe we should be fully logo-less.

At first reading, I thouht it said "The web. In Legos".

I have to say, I'm disappointed.

The page fails to load for me, though from the comments I'm not missing much.
