    Just curious as to what everyone uses as their start page on their browser of choice. I use Google, but that seems a little superfluous when both Safari and Camino (the other browser I use) have google search built in.

    I also have the Google Homepage. When I'm out and about it's a quick page to download and test whether I've got a connection and it's speed before moving to something more intensive.

    I use the default Firefox Google start page. Maybe it should be something different, since I never use it, but I find that it's a nice clean page and maybe I just don't wanna change it.

    I always use a blank page. I hate it when I open a new window and a site I don't want to visit starts to load.

    Blank page.

    But then of course I immediately hit ⌘-1 to go to the latest posts, which I have as the first bookmark in my Bookmark Bar.

    I use Shiira and have my home page as --- a blank page. Nothing on it at all. :)

    I use a blank page. There isn't one page that I need to see everytime I open my browser. I almost always open my browser from NetNewsWire or Mail anyways.

    In Camino, which I haven't used in some time, I have it set to this only because I found it hilarious:

    Agreed – it loads so quickly that it's a good test. Like, billchase2, I have the customised version, like so:

    Very useful as well. :)

    apple.com

    If there's a new product I know to shoot for MacRumors' front page as opposed to my usual. :p

    I have a blank page. Even though the first thing I always do is check MR, it's good for opening other tabs/windows for other purposes.

    Firefox's Home Page.
    Which, is pretty much Google.

    Blank page, but my home page is a collection of searches I put together.

    www.imdb.com as whenever I'm watching a movie I repeatedly make trips to this site anyway.

    Same here, but instead of hitting cmd-1, I just hit "f" in the url field and automatically goes to:
