Rebuilding Wibki: A New Era of Web Organization

It’s been almost a decade since we first launched Wibki, and what a journey it has been! Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of helping hundreds of thousands of people organize their web and unlock the true potential of online browsing. 

However, like an old dock weathered by time, Wibki’s foundation had started to show signs of wear and tear. But we were determined to keep our vision alive. That’s why we set sail on a voyage to rebuild the entire infrastructure and base the website on cutting-edge technology. 

Today, we’re thrilled to share the result of our hard work and introduce you to the new and improved Wibki. You can find it here in beta.

Rebuilding Wibki

The journey to the new version of Wibki started with a complete reconstruction of the site from the ground up.

  • Our first priority was to maintain the familiar look and feel that our users know and love.
  • We wanted to take it a step further by introducing a range of improvements to enhance your browsing experience. With new sorting options, improved categorization, and a more minimalistic approach, we aimed to make navigation even more intuitive and efficient.
  • We’re excited to introduce priority logo creation for our premium members, ensuring that your bookmarked sites are visually represented in the most distinctive and personalized way possible.
  • We have incorporated SEO settings to empower you with greater control over your web presence.
  • Improved mobile experience, both for viewing and editing your Wibki on the go.
  • Search, many requested it and here it is. Now you can search through your tabs.

With this new foundation, we’re now poised to introduce a host of exciting features that we have planned for the future. Stay tuned for an even more enriching and dynamic web exploration experience with Wibki!

A change in our business model

For the past decade, Wibki has relied solely on income from search ads and affiliated links. Unfortunately, the landscape has changed, and these models are no longer as lucrative as they used to be.

The Dark Side of the App Store

dogipad1Something great happened on July 10, 2008. The Apple App Store was born. Only six years down the road more than 60 billion apps were downloaded through the platform, making it one of the largest stores in history.

As Apple & Google are about to launch their app stores for the largest untapped screen in our homes, it’s worth pausing for a moment to address its dark side and understand the magnitude of its impact on our lives.

Is Apple the Supreme Court of our digital lives?

This is how Google is killing the Web


On our Desktops & Smart-devices, everything is just one touch away. So why on the browser do we solely rely on Search?

For the past 7 years I have been on an ongoing search to present the best new sites, services & apps to my readers. Every week I find at least one site that blows my mind. I get excited about how this service could evolve into something big, it’s potential to grow into a billion dollar business, and how it can change the face of the Internet.

But you won’t find these great sites on the first page of Google results—you might not find them on the first 10. As a result, these services, some of them genuinely life-changing, get lost in the dark recesses of the Internet.
