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 info other than simple geo and browser/os version data. 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 light and practical network that does not add to your data trail and there is no account to be compromised.

Origin of the name - Kiwibeak

1. The name was inspired by a good friend of mine while we were clerks at a mom & pop magazine/newstand shop during the early days of the internet. It is a long, strange story but he was a really smart guy, former history teacher who has coined many uncommon and rare terms. R.I.P. Chris 2016. When I first launched onto the world wide web, on impulse I thought of it, referred to 'Point #2' (following) and like a Kiwi and after sniffing around in the dark, just ran with it.
2. I originally saw the site as a type of bird-and-beak analogy related, now obtusely and obscured, to the purpose of online surfing and data pointing (alternative to searching). To say my ambitions were lofty or 'in the clouds' is the understatement of the millenium. But mainly, I wanted to make sure there was a homepage site out there that was protective of the common user and grounded. REFERENCE: AS RELATING TO THE MAORI LEGEND OF THE KIWI.

The Hatching

The site after its early years began focusing more on individual homepages and soon morphed out of its hybrid homepage-slash-curated web directory shell. The rise of social media use and mass corporatization of the web drastically under cut non-corporatized data and serious independent data-focused sites.

The grown entity known as Kiwibeak was forced to switch and adapt its focus solely on homepages, where it will stay, obscure but immortal in the ages as the world's first privacy focused homepage(s) site.

Glossary

beak men·tal·i·ty the state of being conscious or aware, responsible in relation to online privacy and security; seperated from or most importantly immune to negative effects of desensitization, indoctrination or consequences of status quo media, data-harvesting and manipulation regarding online platforms, media and services.

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 most popular networks and homepages.

You can feel safe booting up your browser with Kiwibeak. Our simple, minimal AND browser-privacy respected "opt-out" geo-stats exist for purposes to reflect a world-wide user-base of solidarity and symbolism of 'breaking the chain' that collectively may even serve to confuse others' aggressive cross-tracking attempts.

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.

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 join the noble herd.

Setting your homepage via browser

For some 'odd' reason different browser vendors keep occassionally change the menus where you can locate the option and fields to specify what url or web address or page to set your browser homepage. It is usually located under one of the following browser application's menu names: "Settings"; "Edit"; "Options"; "Tools."

EXAMPLES:

Firefox

  • 'Edit' (drop-down menu)
  • 'Preferences' > 'General' (tab)

Chrome

  • '...' (icon button, drop-down menu)
  • 'Settings' > 'On Startup' (section)

All browsers are different and do change with updates, so just make sure to look around, explore and take control. Note: Also advised is to always make sure to set your desired privacy and data retention settings as well.
