Here at HackCollege, we receive many emails telling us about new and potentially useful services. One that caught my eye was Schoolr, a one-page, no-thrill site that links to popular search engines.

Here’s an idea: Setting Schoolr as the Home Page would allow you to search Google, the dictionary, the thesaurus, Wikipedia, UrbanDictionary, and many others as soon as you open your browser.

To do this: With Firefox, hit Tools, then Options. Under the Main tab, set your Home Page to http://www.schoolr.com and click OK.

And keeping up with all the Facebook news around here, Schoolr has its own Facebook Group, too. With a chicken, I believe, as its mascot. Hot.
