Quick URL Tip for Blank Home Page

Are you annoyed by the default home page on Internet browsers?  I’ve wanted to mention this tip for some time, but the subject was off-topic for other posts.  You can enter a simple URL – Uniform (or universal) resource locator, the address of a World Wide Web page – that creates a blank or empty page.  Simply enter “about:blank” in the URL field and hit enter.  This will bring up a blank page – refer to screen shots below.

Enter about:blank into the URL field and hit <enter>

Blank Home Page

This works for Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari (Apple), and Chrome (Google).  Much cleaner look and you can set this as a permanent home page, if desired.
