Surfpack 2 Builds The Ultimate Personal Start Page

Softshape has released Surfpack 2.

Surfing the Internet shouldn’t be an exercise in dodging endless advertising pop-ups and boring content, it should be customizable to the needs and interests of the individual user. Softshape has designed Surfpack 2 to be a powerful Internet resource aggregator, bringing news and favorites to the start page with total flexibility of format.

The creation of a custom start page with Surfpack 2 frees users from corporate-sponsored content and ads while offering access to RSS feeds and exceptionally clever bookmark navigation. Surfpack 2 builds an HTML page which resides within the user’s preferred browser, supporting Internet Explorer™, Firefox and Opera. A Surfpack Startpage assembles modules for search features, news and weather, photos and horoscopes, among others, and not only reads RSS and Atom feeds, but feeds in XML, Javascript and HTML, with plug-in options. The features of Surfpack 2 are described at

Softshape offers multiple-user discounts on licenses for Surfpack 2, starting at USD $29.99 for a single-user license. The details are available at A Microsoft Windows™ 95/98/NT/2000/XP operating system and MSXML 3.0 or higher are required.
