How do I make Pendle.Net my start-up page?

 

When you start up any internet browser, it opens a predetermined web page which has been designated as the browser's "home page" or "default start-up page".

Pendle.Net should be the first and last place you go every time you surf the web.

Here's how to make Pendle.Net the first place you visit - automatically, every time.
