    Is it possible to have a Browser with a set of different home pages?


    For example :

    Could I have a browser that I designate for -

    Sports, that has 5 sport home pages devoted to my fav Sports Sites.
    IT, that has 5 home pages devoted to my fav IT Sites.
    News, that has 5 home pages devoted to my fav New Sites.

    I assume each instance of the same browser would have to be unique, for example : Say I had a icon for IE on my desktop called Sports, IT, and News. Then when I clicked on one IE would open and load the appropiate home pages.

    The only other way I can think to do this is install a different make of browser for each scenario.
    Example
    Chrome for News
    Firevox for IT
    IE for Sports

    The problem is that I have too many homepages that I need to open at once and IE only allows you 5.

    Thanks

    Hello @midiman , welcome to tenforums! :)

    IE allows me 8,
    Chrome, Firefox and Edge seems to be unlimited, so far, for me!

    Hi Edwin,

    Yes I might have to try the others because I can only do 8 with IE11.

    If you're going to keep using IE, the easiest thing to do is to put folders of groups of Favorites on the Bookmarks Bar, then wheel-click the folders to open all in tabs:

    then press AltFileNew Session to open a new Window/Session and another folder in tabs:

    With Chrome, you can save numerous pages as Home Startup pages,
    you can also create another user in Chrome with separate Startup pages.

    Similarly in Firefox as well, although, running two separate FF profiles simultaneously doesn't work so well.
    If you want to add multiple Startup Pages to Firefox: in the add pages dialog, separate each URL with a space, upright slash and space
    Example:

    Thanks Edwin.

    I really appreciate your help.

    I am going to try doing it in Edge and see if I can manage it that way as I don't want to learn too many ways of accomplishing the same thing with different products.

    Thanks again for your help.
