    I would like to find a homepage, also. I woke up this morning to a bogus looking msn webpage, and it looks really bad on Firefox on XP, which is what I am running on this machine.

    does seem like a microsoft bullshit ploy to get us to run internet explorer doesnt it. that will happen when hell freezes over.im thinking that the other browsers just dont have it figured out yet or ms is being stingy with info,or both.

    I can only run up to IE 8 on the XP machine. And, although it looks different than in Firefox, it still looks like crap. I don't run IE anymore and have not for about a year.

    Yes, I do. On both Firefox and IE 8. I moved on and am using the Yahoo main page. It isn't the best, but it beats MSN's bastardized website.

    I recommend http://www.start.me as start page. It's not affiliated to any of the "big players" like Google/Microsoft/Yahoo and it gives you a lot of flexibility to customize your start page.

    I am still using Yahoo. It's okay, but I may play around with Start Me as Mark suggested.

    I looked at it this morning, for the first time in a long time. It has somewhat sorted itself out, so I may give it a shot again, too.
