    I have been a very loyal fan of MSN for my home page now for over 8 years now, Today has just put the lid on the jar for me though. I found that for the last 4 weeks or more MSN has been advertizing for Obama, Using the First Lady today! I am no longer going to use MSN for my Email or my Home page. This just has me disgusted! It seems that MSN is a left wing media out let and really I do not want my Home page to be political at all. Yes give me news but be far be balanced do NOT push me to view your political views, Am I right? How do you feel about your HOME page and would you change it and your Email if this is what you see?

    I wrote a custom home page with links to everywhere I go, grouped by function.
    It's just text links. I've been using it for many years.

    Google is my homepage. And no. Loyality (is that a word????) on the internet is silly.

    MSN, Yahoo and so on, if non personalized, must be the most horrible garbage and gossip homepage ever seen... and I would never have related "loyalti" to homepages (or doritos, etc) Just my 5c :)

    I use to switch a lot, mainly have a newspaper.

    My home page has always been about:blank and if it isn't about:blank I get annoyed so yes, extremely loyal. I know exactly where I want to go on the internet when I open the browser and every second it wastes loading a page I don't want to see is a second I'm unhappy.

    My homepage is raw HTML with hyperlinks and no other garbage. It loads instantly and it takes me about one second to click the link where I want to go.
    A lot faster than typing in a URL or using favorites or whatever.

    iGoogle for as long as I can remember. Since they are getting rid of it in a week's time, I need to decide what next.

    i have 5 tabs set to open when I open Chrome. 4 Facebook games that I play and TPU :D

    for the record, its not some ghey game like Farmville, its hunting type games: Ghost Trappers, Alien Visitors, Fish Wrangler and Mousehunt. All games work on the premise of hunting every 15 mins (or less in GT and AV). Also I definitely dont put real $$ into those games either, they are just good time wasters when TPU forums are slow :p

    I got tired of page loads, so about:blank it is (and has been for years).

    (edit: For a while it was Mozilla's/Google's Firefox Start Page (in Firefox), but I long ago got sick of a chunky MSN type page loading up.)

    Been using TPU as my home page for many years now.
    Nothing better than opening it up and see all the news.

    My home page is the speed dial of the browser (a offline page with your favorite sites names and thumbnails) :)

    That is actually an awesome idea!! Hell, I may have to do that myself. Would make it a lot easier to navigate to where I wish to go. :toast::toast::toast:

    I need a homepage that loads fast. Really fast.
    When my boss walks into my office I may need to bail off TPU or a Jeep site NOW !!! :roll:

    I can imagine lots of people wanting to do this but not possessing the skills or knowledge. Could it be a viable project for you to make an app. that sets it up for a nooby user? That's easily customisable by said user for their own links etc? Or is it way too easy to even need an app for?
