ABOUT:

NOW HOSTED AT STARTPAGES.YAK.ONL - Kiwibeak is the world wide web's first and oldest privacy-oriented full-page graphical startpage and homepage service. It's been online since 2005 and eliminates the requirement for trackable user registration or cross-tracking implemented by other major companies, helping to eliminate or reduce data-harvesting efforts.

  • Our startpages:
  • Should display nicely on mobile and tablets as well as desktops with contemporary browsers.
  • Offer a servicable, practical daily application that stands as a demonstration of solidarity against complacency and unethical privacy-invasive tactics commonly used via devices or the majority of websites/applications and the larger network of data-harvesting, profiling and selling their users out. A conscious aid to your online behavior.
  • Are based strictly on simple core web technologies and offer device homepages detached from the growing corporatization and cross-tracking, javascript and advertising overbloat that exist on typical webpages that constantly profile and track your web use. Collectively use a Kiwibeak homepage as your startpage with others to stand against and help break cross-tracking and profiling chains.

Feel free to communicate, recommend to others, offer suggestions or tip. Kiwibeak predates many major sites, yet has existed due to one developer's efforts, voluntarism, and pioneering in full support and advocacy of the open web since the mid-2000s. You are invited to use the site as well as help out anyway you can [SEE Feedback/Support sections on this page].

Da 'Beak

The term 'kiwibeak' was coined by Christopher Adam Bedore of Lisle, who was a great man and teacher (for the years when the establishment still hired the passionate, free-thinking and wise minus agenda), but most-of-all for the creator of these webpages: a like-minded compatriot and A++ buddy. He inspired the name for this first website I started all those years ago and regardless of its offbeat ring, this site serves a serious function and will remain grassroots, not based on the commercial equation.

When I started Kiwibeak, I thought I was filling a niche and providing a useful service out of goodwill. In reality, it has found little support and oddly even more derision and attack over its first 15 years for championing privacy and fighting against tracking / surveillance as an entity. Well, in retrospect, you can see the sad status quo. Yet, the 'Beak will still remain online and be maintained indefinitely at the address: startpages.yak.onl. A big thank you to those who have supported over the years. As time has shown, you'll probably never hear of it in the media, on wikipedia, or find it pegged on other applications as it cannot make money for them... its significance on the world web stage and history invalid and unrecognized by the dogs of exploitation..

Anonymous and Secure Browser Homepages

Kiwibeak homepages are truly private and safe. Virtually every other homepage out there is built on an application platform that tracks, records and stores your browsing habits either with or without registration, often collecting and logging your private and personal information.

Kiwibeak homepages do not collect and store such information nor utilize databases or cookies to track user information. In fact, all Kiwibeak homepages are simply basic webpages designed to protect user privacy and safety offering truly free and anonymous spyware-free internet homepages.

Each homepage is part of a self-contained light and independent website.

Independent & Open Internet

We collectively support an open, private and secure web where information and navigation are not controlled and monitored by agenda or marketing-based interests. Kiwibeak offers simple and minimal homepages that you can use on your devices instead of a blank page with some general links, data and toolset. It uses an non-invasive html foundation.

Privacy and Security

Kiwibeak homepages are simple non-database driven and designed basic webpages helping to break the tracking chain. Beyond the ISP-level, privacy and security are relative to the apps, tools and use of websites on the internet and mobile devices. MANY sites try to also track and follow your habits, including the majority of websites, networks and other homepage or startpage services.

Set a Kiwibeak homepage as your privacy startpage today!

Choose from plenty of unique graphic themes! Trusted, secure online homepages since 2005. The originator not the imitator of full-screen, themed homepages. Plus the only homepage of its kind that actually offers itself free and private with no strings. Privacy is relative to web activity, use the Kiwibeak family of great browser homepages and help protect your data.

Minimal and neutral web directory //project//

Currently attempting to rebuild the web directories with quality useful and practical sites. The prior decade of corporatization of the internet has diminished our directories by 70%. I am attempting to rebuild with careful curation and organization. Certain sites that do infringe on our (key words:) open web and privacy standards will likely not be listed, minus few exceptions based on general public use criteria (ex. major news wire = public necessity. F__ book = not necessary, anti-open and anti-privacy). I need your help or suggestions, if you are interested - feel free to contact. Feedback and submissions are open.

Feedback/Support

Suggestion Box

If you would like to contribute suggestions, opinions or potential useful links for the directories, the current email is available:

Help Support Kiwibeak

User requirements:

  • A contemporary web browser that can parse:
  • Javascript (dependency) implemented for feeds and features.
  • Also, it's a good idea to have a browser that has:
  • No data collection and privacy/tracking controls that work.
  • ADVICE:
  • Be wary of others that claim to offer privacy and security but do not (including big tech companies who often do lack integrity and ethics as time has shown too often and too many times AND without any consequence or penalty).
  • All major legacy web browsers are not recommended anymore to due lack of privacy concerns and common-sense ethics.
  • Choose open-source ports, like open-source "Webkit and Mozilla-based browsers" [minus tracking and hidden manipulative hardwired elements, undisclosed unethical updates or controls] AND those offered by organizations that do respect privacy and the open web 100% unfailingly. Do your research, research well.
  • Advised is to also always make sure to set your desired privacy and data retention settings.
  • Learn your browser and periodically review and audit the vendor, their claims and integrity through reliable third-party tech, independent critics.
