and everyone sets their home page to their favorite site, some like blank (no page displayed), or Google, or perhaps TR.

My personal choice is NASA's Astronomy picture of the day, I like it because each day another picture comes up, always space or science is highlighted, this morning when I opened my browser I thought it was an update, http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap111204.html then I realized it was just Light Echoes from V838 Mon.

Interesting, but not really the logo it seems to resemble.

Try SRWare Iron or the "vanilla" Chrome, or a portable version of GChrome or Iron.

If you use a lot of Google services regularly, go with the Google flavored Chrome portable.

It seems they have updated somewhere in that time. There certainly is a bit of lag there.

by Michael Jay In reply to 13 hours later...

and they are almost always updated when I get there 'bout 06:40am, guess someone overslept today. :)

Oh, that's just the color.

I just redirect the home page to a local file, and all it has is the HTML hex code for that color. Easier on the eyes than white.
