"one the Internet's most protective privacy policies and -- most importantly -- does not contain a single banner or pop-up advertisement throughout the entire site."
The search and directory portion of the site features Google content. Pdf and other alternative formats are available in html but listed as cached which is different than what's found on Google.Com. Image search is also available.
Other portal features include free e-mail (5mb inbox), page personalization, toolbar, and more.
They also promote the site as "fast loading". Each page features a box with an approximage page load time.

Good looking site (portal) and FAST.
Uses the ODP as the directory...(In the form of the Google Directory.)
Based on my first impression, it is a decent portal and could give Yah00 a run for the money...
So, can anyone tell me what the point is of starting up a new portal using Google content?
I dunno? Because they got tired of waiting for the Google update? :>)
But seriously: Yahoo was a decent portal, but the fact is that many are still on a dialup account. Yahoo takes forever to load...
Secondly, it looks like a fast site.
Other than that, not much new....just faster and cleaner looking.
Brett, I'll have to agree with you that the html is an absolute mess! I'm sure someone from myway is following this thread and we'll have a new user posting that they are now validated. ;)
Still pretty quick and I'm for anything that is without in your face, all the time, advertisements.
Hmmm. I'm not easily offended by a site's appearance, but...
Anyway, why should I use that site? -Heini
Somebody needs to tell them that their site isn't Opera friendly. Adwords are displaying raw code.-WebGuerrilla
Almost makes me want to cry, imho it doesn't get any worse.-NFFC
Whoa 200 html errors. These are not "webmaster perogative" errors, these are some majors. hmm site by microsoft? -Brett_Tabke
Well I guess we know how the powers that be feel. Marcia, i'm glad you liked it, i did too. Its my new homepage and I didn't even notice the 200 html errors.;)
Now the one basket can hold some more of my eggs.
It's funny how this site looks just like Yahoo's homepage. I mean jeez!...i felt like I was at Yahoo for a minute when the page loaded.
I don't know about the rest of you but I sincerely don't want ANY more websites with or using anything from Google. They already have most of us by the throat, pulling their strings of God-like proportions over the rest of our "skinny businesses."
What does this mean exactly:
"My Way makes money through clearly identified sponsored listings and text links. We also keep our expenses low by partnering with the best and most trusted providers in the business instead of doing everything ourselves.
Does it work? Yes. In fact, we will be profitable in our first month of operation."
This website makes me laugh. If the rest of you haven't caught on.....please.....hahaha...ok...hahaha, excuse me. :\
