Is Yahoo Your Homepage?

I signed up for Yahoo, five years ago, when I first got my computer. But, I have never used it on a continual basis. I actually used my yahoo e-mail for dumping junk. If I was on a site that I was not sure about and they asked for an email address, I would give them the yahoo one. But lately, I have been hearing a lot of people talking about Yahoo, so I decided to make it my homepage so I can see what all the fuss is about. I usually use MSN, but I needed a change anyway. Besides, two of my good friends use Yahoo. Anyway, I wanted to know what makes Yahoo unique and special? Is it a good idea to have it as a homepage and why?

Yes, yahoo is my homepage on both of my browsers. It's been that way for years and I've just never changed it. I don't even know why. I think it's habit. I really don't think it's unique or special in fact even with my filters I get way too much spam.

I have never really liked yahoo even though I use to have an email account there. Not anymore as I use gmail - filters spam, stores more, and seems more user friendly to me. I don't really use anything as my homepage except my bebo.com page.

Not to be rude or nothing, cause you know you my girl and all. But, child you need an intervention. How many pictures do you take per second and who's paying you girl? I can not believe one person could take so many pictures of one child. You scared you gone miss something? If I were that poor baby, I just would refuse to smile at you anymore. Maybe that would slow your roll, pun intended. If I were him, I would charge you a modeling fee, mommy or no mommy, that is work. Are cameras going out of style or something? You have gone bebo alright. I just knew it was some kind of ailment. So sad, so young, LOL.

I like Yahoo because the features that I use most often are all on the front page. I see the new picture of your little darling. She is adorable.

I have Yahoo as my home page, and I use it for everything. In my email area I use my calendar and notepad constantly. As I read in some of the other answers here you can customize your page in different scenes and colors. I also store alot of my pictures there in case somethin ever happens to my computer, I won't lose them. I also make use of the folders too. i use alot of them to store certain emails. I don't know what I would do wothout it. Hope this helps.

Yahoo isn't my default homepage. At home the laptop default homepage is MSN. In the office the desktop default homepage is blank:)

I have it as my homepage because thats were my email address is and I am not interested in having another. It makes life so much easier for me because everyhting goes there and I can check it even while at work without wasting time.

i use yahoo as my home page so I can just hit the home button and automatically go there...those since I have the yahoo toolbar i guess i don't really need it...i like seeing the quick news headlines & feature stories & will check my email with yahoo for new spam i guess, since that seems to be all it ever gets anymore - i use a different address through outlook for my personal address... i used to like msn a lot when i first got into the internet but after they deleted my hotmail account for no good reason i pretty much decided i didn't like them anymore...msn is really good for researching cars though for some reason. i have no idea why, but they make it so easy for the reports and comparisons...they should give up on everything else and just do cars, lol...they do have some good job hunting advice, too...actuallly msn is not that bad for anything, i just sort of had a grudge towards them and their articles don't show up in yahoo's search...hmmm...maybe i need a break from yahoo for awhile...lol

Yahoo is one of my homepages. Why? It's because of yahoomail and yahoogroups. I use it a lot especially when getting updates from my friends.

Actually, it used to be but since I have Gmail accounts that's my homepage now. I miss not seeing the news first thing and I don't know if I can set my Gmail page to show that but I'll have to look into it. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
