Type "http://news.google.com" in the box and then click "OK."

Open Firefox and then choose "Options" from the "Tools" menu.

Select "General" and then go to the "Home page" section.

Enter "http://news.google.com" in the text box and then click "OK."

Open Google Chrome, select the "Tools" menu, which is marked by a wrench icon, and then select "Options."

Open the "Basics" tab, go to the "Home page" section, choose the "Open this page" radio button and then type "http://news.google.com" in the field provided.
