Dear friends,

I know this is an English speaking forum, but there is also much to be searched in languages you do not know.
How to do that read here: http://www.fravia.com/machine_translation.htm

Enjoy, ye all,

Like quite a few others here, about:blank for my home page.

My primary search "engine" (actually multi-engine, it uses Google, Yahoo, and a few others) is Dogpile, although I can't remember if that's what I set as my browser's default.  And for looking up info that doesn't have to be up-to-the-second, like historical data, I'll quite commonly use Wikipedia instead (or too, sometimes).
Intel Atom D2700, 2 gig RAM, Win 7 x64 SP1 & IE-11, Firefox 51.0
(default). 320 gig HD, 15Mb DSL, Win firewall, Avast 12.3.2280 free, SpywareBlaster, MBAM Prem., Crypto-Prevent

Whilst blackle.com is very minimalist and I like that being a dial-up user, I see no point in having a search engine as your home page. That honour should fall to a site that you visit most frequently if you bother with a home page at all, which I don't.

I have avast and IE set to about:blank and that is locked, so nothing to hijack that.

That said I spend a bit of time on the avast forums as you might guess, but I don't have my home page set to forum.avast.com/index.php, however I use the firefox Session Manager to reopen any tabs that I had open when firefox was shutdown.

That for me is a better option than any home page.

Hi Bob!  All I can say about that one is: "Wow!"

I saw so many sites that I wanted to run from the screen.  XD  (Then again, I was on the tablet, so I had to scroll down the page.)

& pol, that's a good suggestion about using the tour feature for a search engine.  (That's something I often overlook.)

Thank you both & as usual, thanks everyone.   :)
