google of course, when i double click my browser icon i want it up and running, so i can either search right then and there, or type in an address like msfn.org.

i've moved so many people from yahoo to google just because of the loading time diffrences.

Homepage ? what is that? :)

I do google searches from opera's address bar.

And have no use to waste space on a "home" icon on a menu...I have 10-20 pages/tabs open, and Opera set to resume-from-last-session on startup.

When you open your browser it doesn't "go anywhere" or attempt any outbound connections - it just displays a blank screen. For IE, thats where my homepage is set to, for the odd time I have to even open that browser.

having "about:blank" sounds like the stupidest thing ive ever heard. id never even considered it.

can someone PEASE explain the sense in that?

Like Crash&Burn said, the browser doesn't do anything on startup. It means that it's waiting for me to tell it where I want to go (since I don't always go to the same place when I open Opera). As for Google searches, it's a matter of typing g Some random stuff and Opera redirects me here.

That being said, it's about:blank for me. :D

localhost. Specifically, file:///F:/html/homepage.html. It uses Javascript to generate a page with various statistics and webcomics on it. :D

In IE I use about:blank, because I only ever use IE to view random HTML files on my HD to see how they look.
