DH wanted to create a new home page on his laptop, and found that Yahoo is now requiring a hotmail account to do so, which we are not inclined to sign up for.

We are looking for a home page where we can customize our news, weather, etc. Thoughts?

Usually it is my FB page because that is the first thing I check daily. But currently my soap supplier is part of a contest through FedEx for a Small Business Grant and you can vote daily. So I set it to that so it reminds me to vote daily.
I usually change it according to my current "Thing".
Like say the month of November is NaNoWriMo month in our house(Nanowrimo.org), which a month to challenge you to try writing a book/story that is 50,000 words in 30 days. So that is sometimes my page as a "IN YOUR FACE" reminder. Which I am currently failing.... But my daughter has her set and she is ahead of her daily word goal.

I have two. Google and Yahoo. I don't have a Hotmail account so maybe you mean something different than I'm thinking for Yahoo?

This is Texas. We don't have regular seasons here. We have Summer 1, Summer 2, Summer 3 and January.

Yeah, April, we don't either, they didn't used to require it. But when he went to sign up for a new homepage, boom - there it was. Bad move on their part.

Does Google let you customize it with stuff, or is it just the search page?

igoogle.com is a customizable page like I think you're talking about. Although it says they're phasing it out in a year.

I just have my browser open with all the same tabs that I closed it with. So I don't ever see a homepage.

iGoogle might work for him for the time being. They are phasing it out next year (Nov. 1st). I was using it for a while until I decided to use Google Chrome without a home page. iGoogle has email access, weather, date & time, news, etc., all on one page. It's pretty customizable.

Mine is blank.

I always have certain pages pulled up though:

* Facebook
* A Beautiful Mess
* Two Peas NSBR
* Blooger
* Slick Deals

The rest rotate depending on what I've been browsing.
