http://m.www.yahoo.com/

I use to like yahoo. They now have a "m" in front of the www. and changed the layout to total shit. I can't scroll my mouse across the screen without a 8"x8" pop up blocking the web-page.

What would be a good alternative?

what does the "m" mean?

You don't load a blank page and type "ar15.com"?

Yeah, I hate the new homepage too. You can switch to "classic" mode via a link at the bottom of the page, but only until Nov. 11

Like

Fox news

Since yahoo is set as my homepage, it keeps popping up windows showing me how to set bookmarks to my favorite websites and how to use other annoying features. I can't even view the damn webpage without it advertising all it's new features to me........uuuuhgg

and why in the hell does it need a "m" in front of the www. ?

Whats wrong with arfcom

I don't have yahoo set as my homepage, but if I sign in it shows the "m" in front of the www. It's that "my yahoo" thing. However, I don't get any boxes popping up (tried with Firefox and IE) so it must be something in your settings.

It's only a problem if you want to stop.

Take a look at iGoogle. It's customizable, and there are a million things you can do with it.

I like this idea. Learn something new every time you open your browser.

Gmail,corp. email, facebook, howardforums,dodgetalk,a gaming site, another gaming site, various arfcom pages...

Mine has always been Google.com

A very non-descript site that is quick to load if I'm opening a new tab to immediately navigate away from or if I'm opening a new window often it is to Google something.

Google.

Does just what I need it to do.
Link Posted: 11/2/2009 7:18:01 AM EST
Just use about:blank

Never saw the need to load a website before I loaded a website.

Oh, I can think of several topics where this would be the last place I'd go for help/advice/info.
