Randhome, the random home page
Do you set your home page to your favorite news website so you can inform yourself with just one click?
Are you frustrated knowing that your home page takes you to the same site each time, with the same perspective, even though there are so many different takes on the news you could get?

Randhome, the random home page, might ease your woes. At least, it helped with mine.

If you use Dropbox, you can place
home-page.htmlinside your Public folder, then copy the public URL that Dropbox creates (on a Mac or Ubuntu Linux, right-click on the file, go to the Dropbox menu, and then click "Copy Public Link." As an added bonus, this URL works from any machine.
If you don't use Dropbox, you'll have to set the browser's home page to the file path of
home-page.html. On a Mac, you'll use something like
file:///Users/[yourusername]/Documents/randhome/home-page.html. On Ubuntu Linux, the path will resemble
file:///home/[yourusername]/Documents/randhome/home-page.html. I don't know what the path would be on Windows or in other Linux flavors.
