    I have 5 tabbed homepages. 1- Gmail, 2- Techspot (Best tech blog/forum I've found to date), 3- Youtube (purely for my amusement), 4- PINAC ( - a great 1st amendment blog), 5- Twitter (For news headlines mainly).

    Well i've been umm 'bored and lazy (at the same time) enough' to create my own home page carrying links of sites I usually regularly visit. Never ever I used any of those stupid home pages like boogle or ging ;)
