Last week, our poll was a showdown between Facebook and Twitter Facebook Vs Twitter: Which Is Best? [MakeUseOf Poll] Facebook Vs Twitter: Which Is Best? [MakeUseOf Poll] When deciding which method of communication to use it's all about using the right tool for the job, thinking of which network of people is best for the message and all that. But put all... Read More . We tried to avoid getting bogged down in just how different they are and instead get you to focus on which one you like most. The outcome? Well, Facebook won. But only just…

With 498 votes taken, the division was this: 43% voted for Facebook; 40% voted for Twitter; and 17% just don’t really like either of them. And before you start thinking that this is definitive, note that the 3% difference is made up of 11 votes only and that it was neck and neck all week.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

See just how close this is?

This week’s poll question is: Do You Use A Start Page Or Saved Sessions In Your Browser?

Most of us rely on our browsers for just about all our internet activities: work, play and all the rest. How do you like to start your browsing? With a customised start page so you can see everything at a glance? Or with saved sessions of tabs that you used last time? Does your browser “home” page have several tabs you use all the time? Or maybe you use some combination of these? Let us know!

If you have some other ingenious solution or you use a particularly effective combination of these tools, let us know in the comments – we’d love to hear it!

    I made my startPage home and open to last session. I'm working towards a startPage with an iconic cloud representation of favorite links with the scale/size representing past frequency of use by me and color popularity with others. iRobt syndicNation

    Bing and the Star Wars Weather pages are what show up when I open Chrome... Bing because I like its picture and Star Wars Weather because, well, it's Star Wars Weather. :)

    I use 43marks.com.  Basic text links grouped in categories.  No icons, saves homepage space.

    At home: a blank page for quick browser access.

    At work: our company phone extension list so I can view it instantly. Since it's on my hard drive, it comes up even if I'm mobile with no network connection.

    On phone: google.com/m? For quick access and easy searches.

    I use iGoogle as my home page. Easy to get to it whenever I need, just click (or more likely middle click) the home button. It has Google reader, Gmail, Bookmarks, Weather, and just basically everything I need is in there or in my Bookmarks Toolbar which I also use a lot. I keep Facebook and Gmail as permanent app tabs with FF though.

    My home page is a set of three tabs that I use constantly throughout the day - Gmail, Google Voice and Google Reader.
