Ive just converted my homepage to bbc.co.uk, i did have msn.co.uk.

Ive been tempted to have WW, but i do like to see a news flash of the very latest news when I log on!

Who do you have as your home page?

I'm with mat on this,
Just a locally saved HTML page with all my 'must-have' links grouped by subject.
although I take it further, turning it into what is essentially my own local 'directory', across a number of themed pages. At some point in the future, I may even turn those pages loose as mini sites :)

I have PWS running, and have my clients folder as the home page - this way I can look at any of my clients sites offline very quickly and easily, which is probably what I use the browser for most.

Also loads quickly.

Did used to have Google, but now have the toolbar. Also used to have about:blank, but it's as quick to have my current solution and much easier.

I am considering having the text only version of the BBC site for the duration of the war, just to keep updated, although I do have their Ticker running across the top of the screen, so there's not much point :)

<edit>I also have an Active Desktop set up with links to some web sites and commonly used files, as well as a WHOIS so I can just type a domain name straight in to check availability.</edit>

Wait - you mean there are webmasters who don't write their OWN homepage? Whoa. That's a mind blower.

all this internet stuff, never going to take off.

I used to have about:blank for the simply reason it was quick.

I now have [marge...] which is a file hosted on my server, which is also my proxy and is always on.

It loads very fast, and provides several tools i use all the time.

Links straight to local development sites, and their equivalent live versions.

And a few forms which allow me to enter a client account name and bring up all sorts of data or websites etc.

I also have the google toolbar and all my links are arranged into folders underneath the main links folder. The links bar is then shown and this provides me with a number of drop down lists with all my common and fav sites.

Its cool :) but i wish micorosoft would fix the bug where clicking a fav inside a folder opens a new window - means i have to drag the fav into the main window which is a tad annoying

Local HTML file containing four different search functions (Google included) and numerous links to sites the family enjoys. Loads faster than Google even with graphics (of course, it's on my hard drive).
