I'm not sure. Default in Chrome, which is my secondary browser.

In Firefox, I've used a session for so long I have no idea what my homepage is.

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.
I like that idea.

It's a bit outdated as I don't use a lot of the links any more, but it looks like this.

I just plopped it in the domain our company uses.

I have my own domain, and will be using that soon as the company domain is changing and that domain will be going away.
If anyone would like to plop a custom home page like this on my domain I have no problem with that. I'm not doing anything with it anyway.

I'm loyal to my homepage for years - it is my compilation of usefull links that I constantly tweak and improve and change... :)



It is fairly simple code and well editable, if anyone want it, then PM me :) But anyone can create a html page like this easily...


PS. as for the unbalanced news, that is common for Google too, just check this: http://vimeo.com/51181384 !!!

Yeah, I've been pretty loyal to my home page. On my main PC is it TPU, on all other PCs it was a customized iGoogle page, but now that iGoogle is going away it is just the standard Google page.

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?
No you are not, MSN uses AdChoice, they have no real control over what ads show up on their site. AdChoice detects both the content of the site you are visiting as well as the content of other adchoice sites you have visited, and puts up ads tailored to the content. Obviously MSN has a lot of news stories about Obama, and hence there are a lot of ads about Obama.

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.

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?

Trickson, newtekie1 is correct.

I don't see that stuff when I go to the MSN home page or others... I use Ghostery and it crushes AdChoice, ADSense and a host of other trackers.

I use to use it on Firefox; now I use it on Opera and IE9.

What is Ghostery?

Ghostery is a browser tool available for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer. It scans the page for scripts, pixels, and other elements and notifies the user of the companies whose code is present on the page. These page elements aren't otherwise visible to the user, and often not detailed in the page source code. Ghostery allows users to learn more about these companies and their practices, and block the page elements from loading if the user chooses.

Thank you. I am out of thanks for now.

Well my main issue is with there political manipulations I am seeing. I do not like it. as for customizing the page I tried but still get Obama this and Obama that crap. I get enough advertizing and the TV why is it the Internet is now clogged up with crap shit adds and the like? What is it every one has to advertize of put a commercial in when I want to watch a simple video. This crap is just getting out of hand. I wished we could crash All Gore's internet for REAL!
I am so dejected I even switched my EMAIL over! FU,MSN!

Try it though, it does work and they update the list all time.

Customizing your MSN start page or others won't get rid of the ads, it just tweaks them.:ohwell:
As for the ad trailers in videos... not to much can alleviate that on the fly.

It is all about getting a revenue stream anyway possible. :pimp:

EDIT: And, your reply is Thanks enough!:)

Websites have to make money, running a website isn't free. Bandwidth costs money, servers cost money, server maintenance costs money, software writing costs money, etc. Without ads where exactly do you expect news websites, or even TPU, to get their revenue from?

Nooby tip: Ensure you add the protocol prefix in the addresses, or it will try to connect to C:\www.ebay.co.uk etc :laugh:

Was worried about straying off topic, but it's looking good :p

IMO Speed dial is better than a simple list of links, it's prettier, it's less cluttered, it shows more visual cues (thumbnails), it loads instantly too & is easier to add pages, at least in Opera. And there are extensions for Chrome & Firefox too don't know IE, but it's up to anyone.

I used big lists of links before speed dialers on browsers were invented and they were far worse for me, they took me more time to dive on them to find a site than simply using the address bar and write the address or using Google as home page. But maybe people can see more at a glance than me lol.

Not using AdBlock or something similar?

It's the quadrennial presidential election season over in the US, so news regarding that will disproportionately high. Anyone remember the news flood during the Olympics earlier this year? Just took a look over at MSN right now. I mostly see the usual celebrity gossip/trash; only one political article: "Ryan, in coal country, hits Obama on energy". You can try clearing your cookies. That might help with things.

Ever since I've been apart of TPU, it has been my homepage. Its my homepage on every computer I use and I'm so used to clicking the home page button to get to TPU I don't think I could ever change it.

Before TPU it was google though, but since chrome's adress bar is always a search bar I just use that.

What browser are you using?

I use Firefox. AdBlock and NoScript together solves most of my advertisement problems. And yes, they're free.

There are 3 AdChoice ads on TPU's homepage, not to mention the inline ads...MSN only has one...:confused:

Switching to TPU as your home page to get less ads makes no sense.

Okay I think you are missing my point, I am sick of MSN plain and simple, I used to use yahoo back in the day and changed back only to find that I was just making a lateral move. It is nothing more than the same mondain crap advertizing, More brain washing if you will. I just do not want it any more. TUP is a Clean look a great look mind and body if you will. :eek:
I see what is going on at MSN, Google, Bing and the like. Yeah I get it I am on the grid and they want me to buy this or vote that or get this now.
