For some reason when I select a news site as my home page my computer is really slow. When I use blank it operates normally.

Anyone have a good homepage, for news? No, not CS! I'll get here quickly enough.

Chrome's homepage when you first launch it generates thumbnail pictures of all the sites you most visit. Its actually quite awesome.

This. Download Google Chrome. You can customize your homepage to show the front page of multiple news sources and anything else you want. When you open your browser you'll have a slew of things all on one page to pick and choose from.

You can also add 'hover'. It allows you to hover the cursor over a pic thumbnail, text thumbnail, or link, and it will enlarge it to view without having to click on it. It's very convenient.

It isn't any better.

My service has been crappy since Comcast rolled out Xfinity. What a giant POS!

(it's been raining for three solid hours without a let up.)
