    OK, think I am a prude, but here is the situation. I just switched the family over to an iMac last friday. We used to have MSN as a home page on the ole PC. Now Apple has us start on Netscape's Apple page. I like the apple news, but a half naked Britney Spear's doesn't cut the mustard. (We have young kids, not that they surf yet, but I surf in front of them.)

    Do you guys know of a good start page like MSN, but that isn't run by the devil incarnate Bill Gates. Thanks!!

    Just use Google. It doesn't have anything but a search engine, and it's the best search engine.

    Cool, thanks for the heads up. Something like that probably will work the best. My 5 year old is learning to read right now, and I bet he will be surfing in a year. If I see something cool on that page I can get him interested.

    (I personally prefer MR as my home page, but until I have Panther with user switching we are all using one account. :rolleyes: You listening Steve? Hurry it up already! :D:D)

    Coincidently, Yahooligans! is the homepage of the elementary school my mom teaches at.

    I know this isn't related, but Tazo I love your quote from Adam!

    You can't go wrong with a blank start page. That's what I do.
