Friday Five: start pages

Today is the lazy man’s Friday Five, totally hijacked from Lifehacker:

Five best start pages, as determined by Lifehacker readers.


No surprise to see that iGoogle (my start page of choice) is in the mix. It’s an easy-to-customize dashboard that shows me Gmail, RSS feeds, news and other personalized features. I get a lot of mileage out of it.

But iGoogle isn’t for everyone. My wife still swears by her My Yahoo! as her start page. Apparently, some folks like an anti-start page, as About:blank is one of Lifehacker’s top five.

Check to see if your favorite made Lifehacker’s list. You can also vote for your favorite.

  1. A second for Netvibes. I’ve also used iGoogle and MyYahoo in the past, and prefer Netvibes over both of them. Elegant and fast, with a useful assortment of widgets.
