Where do you start? I guesss with me, old habits die hard. I start at Yahoo. I am a news junkie and I am used to immediately checking out their headlines. After I get into things I will use Google to search for the most part since I have the toolbar.
mine has always been a search engine, currently it's google, because i love the firefox google page, but for years it was dogpile.com. I find myself always looking up something and it's just easier to have my homepage load to it automatically
I currently use Maxthon Browser which has tabbed browsing so when I open up my browser I have about 50 pages load up, fortunately I have a PC that can handle that load. It's a nice feature that really saves time from having to open several browser windows and you have however many of your favorite sites right there at your fingertips. The site I frequent the most is probably Goodle news http://news.google.com/
I have to agree with William_Wilson about the search engine for my homepage, and yes I do have the Firefox Google homepage as well....it just looks so cool and is very helpful for Firefox users. I did have Google.co.uk as my homepage until about a year ago though, and Yahoo before that....ahh those were the days
Mine is Google Personalized Homepage, used to be just plain google classic page but changed it to personalized home about six months ago. I have search, customized news, weather, gmail etc.. all in one place.
I prefer www.google.com overall it is the best page for internet surfers it doesn't take time to load and can get you anywhere through it , if you have mozilla you can open multiple windows and let them be there even if you close the browser but havein so many pages loading each time you open a browser if not a good idea
