What do you have set as your browser homepage? Are you using an existing site or service, or have you set-up something custom?
I’ve never thought of homepage customisation as much as a labour saver, so have generally gone with whatever the browser ships with and just typed in what I want.
Do people find these custom homepages useful?
https://github.com/ - I like seeing what people are working on/producing when I fire up my browser. It’s inspiring.
I do. I use a number of browsers, across different machines, in a few different locations, so to have shortcuts to the most frequently used sites easily available across them all is a big help.
I’m just looking into setting up a custom, self hosted start page, possibly using EIGHT.
If I was ‘fully clouded’, I’d have my ‘desktop’ of normal service icons on my own web service. I currently achieve something similar (but worse) with Firefox’s shared favourites.
I have a tiddlywiki (single page editable wiki), which is basically arranged as a big html table with my commonly used links.
Chromium’s default new tab page
Currently using “Wunderlist New Tab”
I Wunderlist. I now have a IFTTT rule so that when I say “Siri, remind me to X” it gets sent to my Wunderlist inbox
Having Dribbble on new tab is dangerous, but nice to see all the great stuff on there.
I’ve just updated my homepage to one of my own creation:
It’s based on https://github.com/crshd/startpage.rwrt, and while not yet finished (need to spend some time finding icons for each of the items in the lists, and I want to add a background wallpaper), I’m pretty happy with it.
I don’t have a homepage, I start with the tabs from my last session. Together with Tab Groups, I can leave tabs “open” indefinitely. I keep a tab group loosely per project, so I can pick up whatever I was doing without having to remember where I left off.
Ya, that’s what I do too; tabs are restored. Opening a new tab shows me Chromium’s new tab homepage, which has links to the stuff I open most often automatically anyway
