    I was just sitting around, watching a show about Jupiter(space interests me), and started thinking about homepages. I used to use a homepage that was something like apple.netscape.com or something similar. It seemed pretty cool, had news and lots of links. But I changed it a while back to the regular netscape page and cant remember the apple one. Does anyone have an idea of what page that was? I would be very interested to see what all of you guys and dolls use as your homepage. Hit me with some ideas. Thanks.

    I've been using MSNBC ever since it debuted. Good way to get all your news, sports, local weather, stocks, etc.

    My browser used to load google directly, but nowadays you can search google directly without having to load the site.

    So I have a blank page on startup. Why wait for something to load?

    At work I have the corporate intranet site.

    Wow. I'm boring. :(

    About:blank, then use an RSS reader to grab the headlines and news stories you want ;)

    This is the most incredible website I've seen in a long time. Thank you very much for pointing it out.

    I miss my netscape web page (for the last couple of days, it seems to go into a loop being redirected upon itself). :(
