Default just got one

Hi all

Just joined you and got a nexus 7. Been on android with phones for over 2 years so I had to have one. Native android is a bit different to sense but am finding my way round OK. jelly bean is awesome. Google now is mental. A very minor issue that is pestering me is I can't find how to set a home page in chrome. Very odd, can any one help on this?

Cheers guys

I would advise you not to use Chrome since it's inferior to other browsers at the moment due to the lag and stuttering that happens while browsing with Chrome. The only thing Chrome has going for it right now is the amount of features it has and the desktop/mobile sync. Use Dolphin

If you want to stay with Chrome, I don't know of a way to set the homepage but those most visited boxes can help

Is there any truth to the claim that your searches in chrome influence the cards you get on google now? I've used Dolphin in the past, but am now using Chrome on my laptop, tablet, and phone, and it seems to work just as well to me.

Have you ever tried Boat? It's the browser that converted me away from Dolphin and Chrome. There really is no wrong choice between the three though, IMHO.

Personally I like Firefox. Boat is awesome also, I would use it exclusively if it had desktop sync like Firefox

No, never heard of boat. Will look it up. Chrome is ok but I can't get used to not having a homepage

Chrome works great on my nexus 7, but is slow on my razr maxx. The lack of homepage button was annoying at first, but I got used to using bookmarks much more frequently.
