What websites do you think make for the best home page in your browser?
For my Home Page, i use All My Faves in all of my browsers. it comes with a number of bookmarked categories, and allows me to set up custom ones for where i want to go.
My chrome browser opens with Fruumo. Weather, Time, recently visited and most visited pages plus a pleasing photo that can reflect the time of year, Fruumo is an awesome extension.
My home page I made myself http://dwightstegall.com/qcweather.shtml
I have been using only2clicks (http://only2clicks.com) for years. I've never found anything to rival its usefulness and its ease of use.
My homepage was "Google Reader." Since Google stopped the reader I now use an alternative news reader as my homepage. Sorry Google, you lost my allegiance.
I have all my favorite sites on a Bookmarks Toolbar. My browser opens to about:blank.
Wikipedia. E.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page
In particular the News section has lots of stuff totally ignored by mainstream media.
I used to use google as my homepage, but way back when I started using Chrome, then a homepage sort of became pointless. I know exactly what pages I want to open. Most of the time, I use a blank homepage, then type in what I want. Chrome's autocomplete is scary good at knowing what pages I want to open, and anytime I want to search google, then there's no need to actually go to google.com, just type it into a new tab's searchbar.
I always open to my main gmail account.
I love to have a customizable portal so I use http://www.protopage.com
The best homepage is obviously about:blank
I made a custom home page years ago that has links to the main sites that I use, if not daily than pretty often. I've updated it over the years and it's still my home page.
I usually use maps.google.com, for a while I used a blank page, a friend of mine made his own start page with links - but I know other people that use other things. I think it's really just whatever page you use the most.
I am an instagramlover, so I use my profile on Instagram as my homepage. You see all the photos you took, and it is nicely displayed.
But another idea the 'currently' extension (chrome) . I uses this option for months but I wasn't amused anymore with its layout.
I don't think there's an absolute, objective answer to that, but that said...
Therefore my choices are usually: blank page, top sites, Google search page.
The home page is always "about:blank" for me.
The new tab/window page is usually the Top Sites/Speed Dial.
It depends on your interests and what you prefer to see or go to first when you open the browser. Personally, using Opera browser or Chrome browser, I go with the Speed Dial that lists my most commonly accessed websites (customizable to whichever sites you like). This way, I don't see junk or crap I don't want and can quickly click the website I want to go to.
For me it is always http://www.google.com/ :P
