Looking for suggestions for a new homepage
After 15 or so years of Yahoo I have finally had enough of the 'celebrity' news flashes, clickbait headlines that link to rubbish articles. I don't particularly want a search engine homepage, just something with a little news and a variety of interestng things that may catch my attention for when I am bored.
or just list your homepages so I can check them out :)If graphics are not important why spend so much on a GPU?

I haven't used a website as a homepage in years. Chrome loads the Apps page on start; I usually launch Feedly from there, or whatever.

I've not had a homepage since the year dot, I just have six or seven tabs that are left open with my most visited sites on.

I'm greeted by the warm bosom of the BBC when I load up a browser. I'd suggest that, or if you want something fluffier to greet your venture into internet land then how about this page http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-HHGgyi01vl..._wallpaper.jpgMy books wot I wrote:

I too am in the "I haven't used a home page in years", but I effectively use my feedly (google reader but still existing) as my first stop when booting up the browser or sitting down. I skim the categories that interest me, see if there is anything interesting.
I also use Google News (but not quite as much as I prefer to just read the summary of what happens in a given day. Less garbage that way), which I have set up for the subjects that interest me. I'll usually keep the tab open and skim the local and world news periodically (make sure nothing major happened), but I only really browse once a day. It is nice because with a bit of tweaking I get a pretty fair and balanced (the real kind, not the slogan) coverage, and I have always been a fan of flipping from CNN to FOX periodically to get a feel for what is actually happening (those two networks tend to stick to heavily spinning real stuff rather than making it up).Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

lol cool cats.
yeah, I have speed dial, but was just looking for a good website that has a variety of stuff on it from news, to some gaming, some funny stories and pretty much anything. I just at times turn the PC on, sit infront of it and can't think what I want to read. Not big on youtube or stuff like that all the time just want a page with a bit of everything with something shiney that will catch my eye. Hard to describe really, the internet is full of everything you can possibly imagine but I only ever seem to visit the same 4-5 web pages.If graphics are not important why spend so much on a GPU?

You might try these:
I imagine you're not really looking for that kinda thing, though; you seem to want more of curated smorgasbord. I'm in the dark there; I get that media farrago experience from a "Random" folder in Feedly (with the aforementioned sites plus Boing Boing, Kottke, etc) and from crowdsourced and automated sites (Hacker News, Google News, etc). I don't really hit traditional front pages anymore. All I can think of is yahoo.com but it's a mess, even by my scatterbrained standards.
