If you can’t figure out where all your money goes, there is a new web 2.0 service in town: expensr (it’s beta, obligatory missing vowel and extra “r” in the name, what more do you want?).

expensr is a free online personal finance manager.

Since expensr is still in beta, features are added regularly and bugs are fixed (you can report/suggest bugs and features). Check the live demo of expensr, or sign up for a free account.

If you’re on facebook you might also want to check iSpend, expensr lite for facebook.

Some alternatives to expensr are Yodlee.com and Buxfer.

What’s up with all these missing vowels?

Flickr was originally intended to be Flicker but the domain name for the website was already taken.

”We thought about some alternatives and then decided to just drop the e,” said Stewart Butterfield, Flickr’s chief executive. ”It’s a little more distinctive than a generic name.”

I guess Flickr‘s popularity must’ve inspired other web 2.0 startups to omit vowels from their brand names.
