What are some good Mobile Home Pages?

Recently, Mobile Chrome on Android gave the ability to set your own Homepage. I hate the default new tab page on Chrome and used Currently for my new tab please until that went under, and now I use Simple. Is there anything like either of those for mobile, or some other portal that you would prefer so I'm not mindlessly encouraged to go to commonly visited websites?

    I don't know if this works on mobile but I've been using Tabliss (on Firefox, but it's also available on Chrome) for a while and I really like it, it has a bunch of customization options and widgets.

    Admittedly, my setup is very simple but trust me you can do a lot more with it if you want. :P (the Hollow Knight wallpaper)

      Yes, this will do nicely, it has a web version that works great. TY for introducing me to Tabliss.

      Nice. I was going to suggest vanilla DuckDuckGo, I guess this works too.

    Can you point the homepage at a file on your phone? Because if so, you can just slap some HTML in there and roll your own. I did that for my laptop, putting a list of daily tasks on it, while also...

    Can you point the homepage at a file on your phone? Because if so, you can just slap some HTML in there and roll your own. I did that for my laptop, putting a list of daily tasks on it, while also making it replace the usual blank new tab page.

      In theory yes, but while I can send an HTML file from the files app to Chrome, it can't be opened from the bar or a bookmark, least as far as I checked.

        If I remember correctly, you are able to access files from Chrome through the file:// URI. Just remember that you need a third slash for root. To access your phone's internal storage,...

    The omnibar is my homepage, and you just set that to whatever search engine you prefer. I open a web browser with intent, not to start thinking about what I am doing.

    For a second I thought this was a request for webpages about mobile homes.

      I wouldn't say no if you have a good one, but it's not what I'm looking for at the moment.
