Default Set Homepage in Chrome for Android

I can find no option in Chrome for Android to set a homepage. The only help Google gives is for the desktop version. I would really like to open Chrome on my N7 and have it go automatically to my homepage of choice. Anyone have a solution?

Using the stock browser (probably the same in Chrome to):
* open your bookmarks by clicking the icon that looks like a pile of books (?!)
* click the icon with a star
* click and hold the bookmark you want to copy to your homescreen until a menu appears
* click add shortcut to home
* Example with wikipedia:

Anyways, I suggest you use Dolphin Browser which is really something, it has many options and is far more performant that Chromium - which is the fastest on desktops: Dolphin Browser is
