    What's your home page??

    Just curious what everybody has their home page set to on your browser.

    Mine is google. I used to use blank, but google loads faster than a blank page. Go figure

    I just use yahoo just cause I like checking out the news links, weather, or I relax and play some chess. I used to have google set as my homepage, but switched it after installing google toolbar.

    Hello,

    I have it set to yahoo because like 404 I like to see the latest news, weather etc. I used to have it set to my sites and used to change it every week

    am i the only one whose browser home page is *not* out on the web?

    mine's an html file on my C drive

    it has links to all the other html files i use frequently, and yes, a lotta links to places out on the web

    but when i fire up a new browser window, because i want to go to some specific page or site, i don't need my browser fetching something off the web first

    yeah i know i could put all those links on my links bar, but how cluttered would my links bar be then?

    and i am *not* going to drill down through those [gasp] goldurned stupid folders in my "favorites"

    hence, all my links are on my home page, which i can get simply by pressing Alt+Home

    I set mine to my own Community Website so I can keep it up-to-date. Once the site is really going well... I hope a good percentage of the people that live in my community do the same

    Hey, a little self promotion can't hurt. It's true.. at this very moment.

    My Firebird defeault is blank, whil emy IE is my favourites (switched to Firebird full time as my new years resolution... I'd always liked Firebird, except it was so natural the placement of the IE buttons. So I replaced the positions of IE's shortcuts with Firebird's and now using it full time. )

    Mine's just on my C: drive (or something like that). Just a nice page with all of my links I need for the day. I think I spent too much time on designing it, after all I'm the only one going to view it. :\

    Mine is set to http://localhost for one very good reason:

    The default page is set to read the directory structure of my web root, thus providing links to each of my projects.

    I have mine set on blank. I use it to check pages I'm working on and it's annoying to wait for something other than what I want to load.
