Abstract

A method is disclosed that allows an Internet browser to present a number of different home pages in a round-robin manner each time a browser window is opened or the home button of the browser is pressed. With the proliferation of "home" or regularly used sites it is difficult for a user to select the best home site. When a particular home site is selected the user must remember to visit other sites where important information is maintained. Often information/communication is missed because the user fails to visit a site often enough. This is particularly the case in large corporations. The solution to this problem is to force the browser to present a number of different home pages in a round-robin manner each time a browser window is opened or the home button of the browser is pressed. These "home" pages will be set-up once by the user (and modified as necessary) and then each time a browser window is opened the next page in the list is selected and presented to the user.
