About this Add-on
This add-on provides the following functionalities:
• Your information on Piggy's Page will not accidentally be lost
• Makes new tabs start on Piggy’s Page
• Provides a status bar icon which when clicked opens up a new tab starting on Piggy’s Page
• Allows for an optional toolbar button which provides the same function as the status bar icon, except it can be positioned and placed where you would like it on a toolbar.
Piggy’s Page Description:
Piggy’s Page allows users to put their frequently visited websites on large buttons that are easy to read. It was designed to represent a numeric keypad to encourage users to use the numbers if they do not wish to point and click the mouse. To edit 1 of the 9 buttons move your mouse over it and click the word “Edit” and a small form will appear which will allow you to give the button a name and a URL. You can also change the style of the buttons if you choose.
There is no account creation involved. All of the information you put on buttons is saved into a cookie when you edit a button and that cookie is only used to remember your links. This add-on saves your button information inside the add-on, so if you delete the cookie by accident the add-on will remember what your buttons were (a major benefit of the add-on). Piggy’s Page is supposed to be a fast loading, straight-forward, and simple start page.
Currently there is a bug where your information on Piggy's Page will not be saved if you delete cookies when you are not on Piggy's Page and then return to Piggy's Page by pressing the "Back" button. Just be careful with this for now. Also, around the end of January there will be a major update to Piggy's Page to improve the design heavily. Currently I'm very busy in school, but will work on this during winter break.
