One day last week, the home page featured stories on Poland, Lebanon, North Korea, and Brazil.
But for all the off-ramps entangling the Internet, the home page still rocks.
Our story made it onto the Times' home page, scoring the No. 10 slot on the most-emailed list.
1. The top-level entry point web page relating to an individual or institution, or possibly a subject area. This often has a URL consisting of just a hostname, e.g. http://ncsa.uiuc.edu/. All other pages on a website are usually accessible by following links from the home page.
2. The web page a user's web browser is configured to load each time it is started. This will typically default to the home page (sense 1) of the organisation that produced or distributed the browser.
