Start Safari with blank page?

    As opening Safari with several pages open takes quite some time on my iPhone 3G, I thought it might be a good idea to have Safari start with an empty page every time it starts.

    Unfortunately, other than putting a web clip with "about:blank" on the Springboard (which doesn't get any icon) I have no clue how I could do this.

    Any ideas?

    I set up a very simple web page - just a few lines of text, and create a bookmark to it that I save as an icon and use that to start safari.

    After a while i thought about it and turned it into a short list of preferred links like bbc news etc

    It is so light it opens instantly even over the slowest of connections

    mine is at if you want to see or use.

    That's a good idea, Stephen,

    I'll try to come up with a page of my own and host it somewhere.

    Can Safari read from the iPhone's local memory?
