With the advent of dozens of customizable startpages from the likes of Google IG to Netvibes, Internet users have a big decision to make when it comes to setting their homepage. Long are the days of simply using Google or Yahoo! as your homepage. Some prefer news sites or Wikipedia while others indulge in a purely academic homepage with something like Ninja Words. The more sociable ones might opt for Twitter as their homepage.
Which homepage do you use, and why?
I use Google IG. I've tried just about every customizable startpage but it just isn't the same. Google IG's look and feel has grown on me. Fast loading, no ads, pure content.
I'm rather curious to see what people use. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict the following:
- Google - 20%
- Google IG/My Yahoo! - 35%
- Yahoo! - 15%
- Netvibes/Protopage/Webwag/Popurls/OriginalSignal... - 15%
- Digg/Techmeme - 10%
- gmail/yahoo mail - 5%
