If you share the homepage on a desktop computer with others in your family (which I do), I recommend using multiple web browsers or browser logins.

Each browser will remember your unique ID, which will in turn remember your own personal websites, settings, and background.

Once you are logged in, click the settings button at the top right portion of the homepage. You can then choose to show or hide any of the many features that appear by default.

To switch between Google, Bing, or DuckDuckGo, you just need to login, then click the settings icon on the upper right portion of the homepage. Under the search option, you can choose between the three main engines."

Best Homepage Ever uses local browser memory to store all of the most commonly used elements of the homepage, which allows it to typically load in less than 0.5 seconds.

The homepage does not use cookies to store additional information, which also helps speed up the content load.

You can access your start page or homepage when opening up new tabs by using the Best Homepage Ever browser extensions.

They are available for free on the Open Homepage in New Tabs page.
