Don't know if you guys have seen this yet... I personally like it, except the /. rss is lagged horribly.

I always liked google because the main page was very simple. yahoo's homepage looks like a mess and isn't very easy to navigate IMHO. I hope they keep that new google interface an option and leave the main page the way it's always been.

A bit cleaner than Yahoo's, that's for sure. It'd be nice if you can set it up like that, but by default, you get the good old Google homepage.

Classic mode will always be an option

I personally dont want to see google turned into a portal, just a search box. That's why I just have gmail on it, so now I have my google search box and my inbox on one neat little page. Of course the gmail inbox has a google search box... so who knows.

Hehehe, I found a new homepage. Wish the weather and stocks worked for Australia though.

In Preferences, change the language to 'Elmer Fudd'. Funny stuff :D

Haahhaha. Next time that 19 year old DD blonde girl you meet on the internet talks to you, remember - this is what she probably looks like.

Go to the home page. "Pictuwes".

That's awesome... but honestly, how many of you still visit the google search page to do a search? Don't you have a toolbar or something built-in to your browser to skip that one step? I'm a fan of yahoo's "my" page, so until they add more to the google one, I'll probably keep using yahoo. The only major difference is that I have a gmail address and I don't have a yahoo address, so that would be one of the major reasons to switch.

Yahoo also does a great job of tracking stocks.

It's my homepage. I've got toolbars and stuff, but I barely use them.

Just like govt...google is my homepage. Funny thing is I hardly use it as my homepage and often still type it in and only then remember it is my homepage heh.

Google firefox (google.com/firefox) is my home page. I have a toolbar but the firefox page looks so nice it's often nicer to wait for it to load.

I just set my homepage to the Google firefox start page. The reason is I realise the one thing I usually do first when I go to browse is go to Google to find what I'm looking for. Should save a little time. ;)
