Recommend a Homepage/Search Engine!
« on: April 23, 2010, 10:23:51 PM »
Hi everyone!


1. What is your homepage or what would you recommend?

2. What search engine do you use & what search engine would you set as the homepage? 

I am thinking about changing my homepage right about now.  Currently, it is search.yahoo.com, but recently there is something under the search box, "Earth's Biggest Puzzles", that is hard on my eyes & is a little annoying (because the search box is no longer in the middle of the page).


Thanks for any suggestions.  :)

P.S. (I looked around the forum for a topic like this already & didn't find one.... Hopefully I didn't miss it some place.)

Hi Kei,

This search engine is my favorite for privacy reasons: http://www.ixquick.com/
But to know what others are searching and in what ranking, home page = google

~lol~ I'm glad to see that everyone who posted was so energetic about the topic.  :D  

I am between Scroogle & the one polonus mentioned, perhaps alltheweb. Hhmm.... but I am not sure what to think about Scroogle (https://ssl.scroogle.org/) just yet. I put in a search for "what are winlogon notifiers" or just plain "winlogon notifiers" both without the quotes & I didn't see a definition or description about them.... There was a lot of info about malware & trojans + removing them, though.

I went looking around on the forum & found that polonus had mentioned Scroogle b4: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=46437.0  (Go figure!)

I will keep looking for more... I love a fast loading startpage. I like about: blank, but I wouldn't put it on for my parents' computers.... (I did that before & they didn't really know what to do when they didn't see anything show up in the browser....)
