about yourport

the idea

The idea is a simple one...."Make accessing your favorite sites as quick as possible".

YourPort is a free customizable startpage that allows you to open your favorite sites within seconds of being online.


the story so far

In 2011, cofounders, Lee and Dean McKeown had an idea, 'wouldn't it be great if you could get to any of your favorite content with one click of the mouse'. After some time of long days and late nights, on the 27th May 2012 they became the proud, yet daunted parents of Yourport.com.

Since then, they have has been busy nurturing their baby into a cool lovable site that they hope is as useful to you, as it has been for them.

As with any new site, YourPort has had to walk before it can run. The site is currently in its 'beta' stage of development so there are still many new features that are in progress. You can keep up to date on the latest ideas and features on the YourPort's blog.

In the meantime, if there are any features you would like to see on the site, something you don't like or any other suggestions, it would be great if you could post your thoughts here.
