Best INTENET HOMEPAGE...And Why you Think It's The Best.

I HATE MY INTERNET HOMEPAGE!!

It's currently set to msn.com.
And honestly, it's probably one of the WORST homepages ever created.
The layout always changes because even they don't know what people like.
Sometimes, they even screw with my settings.
The headlined articles NEVER match the actual hot-linked articles, and msn.com always has an agenda.
Yahoo.com is even worse, so please, don't even mention them.


So I am in desperation mode and looking for what fellow posters think might be the best Homepage on the entire internet.

So that's the question.

Who do you have your Homepage set to, and why do you like them?

Thank you in advance for saving me from future migraine headaches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

uh my browser opens the set of tabs i had open the last time i opened it which are usually my email, tumblr, maybe here, another forum, my last fm and some random page or two i was checking out. It works for me. Most people just use their email which makes sense.

I've noticed that Google is becoming the preferred homepage for quite a few that I've spoken to as well.
My daughter sets iGoogle.com as her homepage too, and swears by it, so maybe I'll try that for a while.

If I don't like it, then I'll try en.wikipedia.org next, since I use that web site as a researching starting point anyway.

The best thing I've noticed about both is the absence of misleading media fluff, no pop-ups and ads flooding the page, and no bothersome animation filling up my memory and slowing everything down.
Thanks guys.

I used to set my "options" this way many years ago, but it takes too much time to load all of those tabs.

If I was still a corporate stiff, I'd go the email route.

Thanks though.

The linked-to thread is similar to this one (though it doesn't use the word Best in the title).

Usually beautiful images and you can learn a thing or two. And no two days are the same.

Re: Best INTENET HOMPAGE...And Why you Think It's The Best.

Forget about using msn, yahoo etc to get your news. Customize your own news with Feedly or some other rss feed app then set that as your homepage.

There are tons of apps out there that will aggregate news from different sources in one place for you or will suggest news based on your reading habits and categories you are interested in. Some will let you create sections based on keywords e.g healthcare reform, ps4 etc

Have you ever had problems with it?
How is it with ads and pop-ups?
I tried Chrome browser once and didn't like it. But I don't remember why because it was so long ago.
Does its homepage load fast (on average) compared to others?

That's actually an interesting homepage, but too specific for my taste.
I suppose if I was into astronomy it would be perfect.

The huge amount of work needed to create the best layout possible was what I was trying to avoid though. But I just may have to do it.
Actually, I had my msn.com homepage set up with all of the rss stock, investment, weather, and sports feeds I wanted, but again, it was slow going, and took too long to load. I think at the time, I had my anti-virus protection settings set so high that I was waiting literally minutes for my homepage to clear all of the anti-virus checks.
The sheer number pop-up, ads, and cookies was ridiculous.
Maybe I'll bite the bullet and go with a freeware browser, and then customize entirely from there like you suggest this time around.
