FlashBeing is a web platform that allows you to combine your daily web business in a single page. It integrates an aggregator able to bring together the main content of the network (such as websites and social networks) in a single page; a semantic engine that also allows you to enjoy music and video; social functions that allow you to communicate, share and connect with people wherever you are. You can imagine it as a kind of new browser.

What’s that for

FlashBeing speeds up your internet surfing, preventing you from opening dozens of websites or app every day, saving a considerable data traffic. It also differs from other web portals on the market by not using your personal information for profit. It is a software designed to speed and simplify your routine while protecting your privacy.
