    What's your Start Page?

    Had a strange moment of synchronicity yesterday. I was moving my Start Page from MyYahoo to Google Homepage (Google ig), and came across this lifehacker entry that compares various homepages. I've used yahoo for years now and like having my main bookmarks at any pc I log into. So I transitioned most bookmarks to google, although for some reason it limits the amount of bookmarks to 50. I also noted netvibes in the review, which looks pretty dense/awesome, and may play around with that to see if it's an improvement.

    Below are my "current" start pages - yahoo and google. What do you use? What makes a good start page?

    Work: about:blank
    No point putting anything cool on my start page at work, cuz the Angry German will go and block it w/ Websense.

    Home: right now it's http://www.homebetatrial.com - Cuz I want in!
    Formerly http://www.xlii.com - and it will probably return once I get into home beta =p

    That's default. IE does the same thing it just doesn't use a useful search engine.

    I vary it up from time to time, sometimes I go with about:blank for the quicker load time, other times it's Google or Google News... Currently I'm using Google in one tab and TG UserCP in another (two tabs load when I start Firefox). I don't touch IE much, but that is always set to a blank page...

    I have to jump in on the about:blank crew. I don't like my browser taking any more time then it has to to load, and I end up going to different pages when I load up, so don't feel the need to set one.

    Protopage lets me post pics, use RSS feeds, other websites (I'm using it with Game-Monitor.com to see the TG POE2 server) and links of course. It does a lot of other things too, I just use a small number of it's features.
