Quickly Change Homepage in Web Browsers

By Posted 2005 Updated   Tips

Do you change your browser homepage frequently? What is the fastest way to do it?

The usual way to do it –
In Firefox – go to Tools>Options>General>HomePage
In Internet explorer – Tools>Internet_Options>Homepage
and in the Location either use the ‘Current Page’ to set the page you are viewing as homepage. All new windows open with the homepage now…

Matthew suggested a great idea on Tricks of the Trade

“Go to the webpage you want to use as your homepage. On the far left-hand side of the location bar you should see a tiny picture, either a graphic specific to that site or a generic “piece of paper” image. This is call a “favicon,” and you can make the current site your home page simply by left-clicking and dragging it onto the “Home” button on your browser.”

Now that is really fast. Personally I set no homepage. I use Blank (about:blank) page to start with. Then I decide what I want to visit by my Firefox live bookmarks.
