I'm sure it's been thought of before, so I take no credit for the idea. I just want to share for anyone who may be interested. I use Safari, but this can be done in any browser really. It came to me when I was organizing files, and making shortcuts, doing things to make my mac more efficient. When it came time to check my browser's book marks, I realized how pointless it was to have a home page. When the browser starts, it can take time if the page is having trouble loading. I realized that Safari has a Google search bar next to the Address Bar. This made my "Google Home Page" seem pointless and even redundant. If I need a google search, I can type in that bar for the same results. I then made my home page "about:blank". Just a blank page, nothing on it. The browser starts quickly and easily, and from there I can navigate where I want. There was no one page I wanted to load on each start up. After a while, I thought the blank page was, well, blank. It needed something there, even if just a background. I created an HTML file locally on the HDD, with an OS X background. Now my browser opens up and looks a lot better, but still doesn't open up to anything on the internet itself, just a local file. To make it look even better, I guess I could do some kind of CSS or advanced HTML, but I don't know how. I'm forced to copy and paste from other places.
