The Google home page is nice, but a bit limited in its usability. There is a good chance that you already know various web pages & # 39; s that you want to visit when you open your browser. There are several options that you can use to set up several of those pages to open when you first launch the browser, saving you a lot of time.

We recommend that you set these pages if it is a daily routine for you – you just need to find the right option. Google Chrome offers you a way to continue where you left off, with Firefox you can set multiple pages as your home page and with Mac computers you can open websites automatically when you first log on to your computer, and so on. This may prove to be a more useful solution than visiting the Google search bar each time
