when u launch your browser, what is your opening screen/home page?

presently my opening screen/home page is the apple site thanks to safari.

i'm thinking of making a change and was wondering what others on this forum have chosen.

my current best choices are: a local radio station's news page, the local npr affiliate, the ny times home page, major league baseball's scoreboard.

any and all thoughts are appreciated.

be well

rob

After some ten years still using the old Excite page that tracks my investment portfolio, current news, local weather, and whatever else I choose to include. Lazy and see no need to change as it still works well after many years.

This is my opening page. Really! There is no place like it. If something important has happened it will be posted here.

There are enough people telling me where to go; I don't need to be bossed around by my browser. I tell it where we're going first, not the other way around.

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

The homepage of my website on the mini.
The Buddha head from the old "Think Different" poster with text removed on the laptop.
At work, sometimes picture of my kids, other times a moon and rings arond Saturn.
I had a screen shot from a Dresden Dolls video for a while.
I change these when i get bored.

Blank, like my mind.

WTH would I want to wait for some site to load every time I open a new window? I know where I want to go today and it ain't someplace I've already been...

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Launching a browser would imply that it gets closed at some point. For me, that's not the case.

Wow, I am surprised by the trend toward blank.

Dealmac was my homepage for many years, and I ilked watching the deals there, before going to the forum. It was hard to change, but they really ruined dealmac, and I don't go back anymore.

Now I come here (and never the deals here, if there are deals posted here).

I wrote my own home page HTML with some links to some sites that I visit from time to time, but not as often as my bookmark bar. I also noted some cookie type info for those times that I need to log into a page where cookies might not have been set. A forum password or two and other helpful information.

I'm also not going to be of any help. I keep new tabs/windows blank. For a while I had Opera's Speed Dial turned on, but I never really used it so I just turn that off as well and so new tabs/windows are back to being blank. Then again, with Opera's session saver feature, I rarely have a blank tab/window when I first launch my browser. Generally I resume with two windows accounting for about 15-30 tabs.

THIS is my homepage as it should be for all of you. As Bernie says "If something important has happened it will be posted here." Before this it was "That Other Place", you know... the one who's name shall not be spoken.
