If you miss the old-school customizable Yahoo start page, you might want to take a look at Protopage.

This free service lets you create a feed with customizable search engines, widgets, and news and weather feeds. When you first land on the page, there’s a helpful tutorial that explains how to use Protopage.

Just as with the old Yahoo layout, you can customize the wallpaper, texts size, color, and display layout.

Register to get started.

Then give your page a name and decide if you want it to be public or private. Provide an email address and set your username and password.

You have the option of adding several search engines to your page.

In addition to your news and interest feeds, there’s also a place to put bookmarks and make notes.

To create your custom news and information feed, click on Add widgets at the top of the page.

You can add a widget for a wide variety of websites.
