Fav4 Makes an Elegant, Simple Homepage With Shortcuts to Your Favourite Services
Fav4 is a website that displays links to four of your favourite services as nice big icons. The point?
To add it as your homepage and use them as shortcuts, pretty much like how you have shortcuts on your desktop.
The site looks clean and elegant –

The above is a screenshot of the site displaying links to four sites – Reddit, Wikipedia, BBC and Grooveshark.
If you’re not happy with the defaults, you can always choose your icons.
Simply click the small gear icon in the bottom right corner of the page
You will be presented with a config box that will allow you to make changes to the list of sites that appears on the homepage. Right now, you can add only four sites from the list, but the Fav4 team says that new features will be coming soon (hopefully including support for custom icons and a search bar)

Fav4 Keyboard shortcuts
Fav4 supports keyboard shortcuts so you don’t even have to take your hands off the keyboard to open the shortcuts. The vital keys are 1, 2, 3, 4 and a, s, d, f – they open the sites of the respective icons. The c key opens the configuration box.
