    Just installed the latest Webkit on a Leopard based PowerBook. Disable the StartPage by entering "defaults write org.webkit.nightly.WebKit StartPageDisabled -bool YES" in sh. Confirmed the option is set to YES (aka: 1) via sh by entering "defaults read org.webkit.nightly.WebKit".

    However every time I start WebKit it continues to show the WebKit default home page. I'm stumped on this one and welcome any suggestions.

    Try changing the home page in Safari itself, not Webkit?

    I had tried that also, no go. Set both Safari & WebKit to blank - still no go. This one has me doing some head scratching.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled WebKit - problem solved!
