Hi Chuck,
There is no big deal to the about:blank thing, unless there is a virus type thing using it to mess up your computer. It says about:blank, but actually sends you to one of their web pages, when it is hijacked.

I use to use about:blank but not at the office. Yes, we can go to different websites; no problem. So, my problem is

What is the big deal about "about:blank"

It happens to be my favorite home page. It happens to be the favorite home page for each and every computer I have built or repaired for the 7 years I have been in business because I set them that way. On very rare occasions, a customer will ask me to set their home page to something different that they choose.

Most people never see "about:blank" because they let Microsoft or someone else choose another home page for them. Even after initially setting the home page to a blank page, time and time again, Microsoft resets it to their site. Talk about hijacking a home page! Microsoft is the WORST!!!!
