Safari: Random Homepages?

Hi, what I would like to do is have new tabs and windows load of with a random page from a predetermined list.

Eg I want reddit, digg or google news to come up each time - I don't want to see the same thing every time.

Anyone got any ideas? Thanks

I've not found anything yet so far.

Is wanting a randomised selection for the homepage not something people have ever wanted?

Is there a smarter way to be doing it? I hope for some thoughts on the matter!

I have not seen way to launch a random page, but there are sites like this that will take you to a random page when you click the image.

Thanks for the response. What I'm looking for is something that will let me set a pool of pages eg reddit, digg, facebook, google news, twitter.

Guess it's not a significant enough a feature for anyone to have implemented

Make a web page with some Javascript that randomly redirects to 1 of the page out of a list you created. Configure Safari to use that page as the homepage.
