The LeapFish Home Page

This post is part of a blog series on "Why I like LeapFish". It is also an entry into the LeapFish $100,000 Cash Dash contest, which you can signup for here.

In this post, I'll be talking about using LeapFish as your home page. LeapFish is not only a multi-source search engine, it is also a web portal and content aggregator. LeapFish encourages you to set your homepage to, and they provide many customization options to personalize your home page just for you.

In order to customize and personalize your LeapFish home page, simply sign up for a free account and then sign in. 

The default layout will provide news content from a variety of news sources, along with a widget for Twitter and Facebook. Yahoo News is found at the top by default. You can also filter the news headlines by Top news, World, Business, Sports and Technology, allowing you to get a quick glance at the News for a certain category that you are interested in.

Underneath, by default, you'll see sports news, including options for NFL, NBA, WNBA and NHL. Then you'll see celebrity news, social networking news from Mashable and Popular videos from YouTube.

All of this is customizable, you can move around content or add or remove sections (widgets) from your home page, which I will be discussing in a future blog post.
