What's your homepage and why?

Mine's iGoogle. Having a search engine is useful, as soon as I get on the internet I can search for things.
All the other important sites, like Pokemon Community, are on the bar at the top of the screen.

I use Macrumors as my home page, mainly because it's neat to see what's cooking in silicon valley.

If I had to choose a different one, it'd be PC for sure.

It used to be MSN.


But when I had my own computer, my homepages were:

pokecommunity.com
clubpenguin.com
webkinz.com
yahoo.com
google.com

Don't have one. i always save my tabs so there's no need for me to have one. if I have to be specific, then it's still the one you get when you install Firefox.

I'm pretty sure I have mine set to be just a blank page. :O If not, it's Google.ca.

Most of the time, though, I hibernate my computer so my browser is left up "24/7". So I turn my computer back on and everything's exactly how I left it. If not, I've usually saved my previous tabs.

edit: Wait, lol now that I think about it, my homepage might be PC. Maybe. lol, shows how much I use it, right?

Google, but it doesn't really matter because (like Lightning) I leave my laptop hibernating overnight so I return to whatever I was on.

Technically it's set to Opera Portal, since I never bothered to change it. It opens straight to speed dial. Yay Opera :D

Also, if anyone cares, IE is set to Yahoo and Firefox is set to Google.

Google, just because it's a really quick site to load. Not that I ever want to search when I first log on XD Also, if Google isn't working, I know that there's something wrong with my internet connection rather than the site.

It's this incredibly lightweight and fast-loading site called about:blank.

I actually don't like having a home page, which is why I use a blank page. I rarely end up using normal home page functionality anyway. I might make a list of links or something locally and use that, but right now I'm too busy to.

Obviously just for searching, because that's usually what I used to start my browsing experience with.

More and more, though, my browsing starts with this site. XD;

Simply put, your dad is incorrect. Maybe there's another reason he wants it as the home page, or maybe he just heard from someone else that this was the case. Either way, there's no possible way that going to the Comcast page will make anything faster. If anything, it'll slow you down by loading something you probably aren't going to be using.

On Firefox: The default Mozilla Start Page - It's basically just Google and I have all the sites I visit in the bookmarks toolbar anyway.
On Safari: Google - It was Safari's "Top Pages" function up till recently when it started crashing on me.
