What's your Home page and why?

I use iGoogle, which is actually 12 pages in 1. It gives me everything I want to know to start my day and many things I might like to know just a click away.

There are thousands of feeds and services that can be added to any of the 12 pages. I'm sure there are many more features I don't use to their fullest, but what I use works great for me.

Home, local, news, humor, music, games, cooking, business, art, technology, politics and entertainment. Each have a page that you can populate with whatever floats your boat. It loads fast and I'm not hindered by some big ass flash advertisement with dancing elves and rabid reindeer prancing across my screen while I'm trying to read the news.

How 'bout you? Whatcha' usin'?

Gmail. When I'm online that's usually the reason I opened the browser. Anything else, I hop to igoogle or browse through my Google Reader and bookmarks.

Google. It's usually the first page I open anyway.

Bing, because I like to see what picture they have up that day. I usually end up clicking on the links to the pictures and learning something new about a place or an animal I hadn't known before. I like the randomness of it.

Google here, as well.
Recently changed it from a browser-based mmo that shut down.

The why is because it's still the best search engine bar none.

This is only further proof that Google is slowly taking over the world.

And yeah, it's my homepage too, of course.

Google Chromium saves the pages that I had open when I close it, so I don't have any need for a home page. Firefox did that as well.

Yahoo at home, my company's web page here. At the last job, though, it went from Drudge Report to the Chicago Tribune to United Airlines over a few years. Basically, the progression was very utilitarian.

I use a my.yahoo.com, I like it, easy to read and see most of the news and information I use and get a quick glance whenever I open the browser. I tried Igoogle, it has a lot more flexibility but I do not find it as easy to see all.

I do plan on retrying Igoogle again it has been over a year since I last tried it as my home page.

UC.edu. I changed it over the summer when I started attending UC, as OSU.edu had been my homepage for YEARS. I'm going to go back to osu.edu now, actually..

I prefer the academic home page because of the interesting "hey, look at this cool research!" links. It also reminds me of any registration, application, etc. I need to do in the near future..

/agree with Cynth. I use a blank screen, don't have to worry about waiting for a page to load either which just slows you down!

I start with the speed-dial in Opera. Then I usually load page 1-6 in separate tabs to quickly browse three photo sites, TFP and local/national news.

regular google.com or igoogle. regular google loads rather fast which is great, lets me type in where I want to go... it's almost as good as having a blank page in terms of loading time. iGoogle for when at work or when dealing with emails.
