Chrome: If you're not enamoured with the default Chrome start page, Start! offers a polished and customisable alternative.
Click on the image above for a closer look.
Start! gives you a new start page divided into two panels, your recent bookmarks on left and your quick links from the bookmark toolbar on the right. You can also plug in an RSS URL to add an additional panel below the recent bookmarks with the news feed of your favourite site — it only accepts one feed, so if you want to combine multiple feeds you'll need to use a service to do so like the bundle feature in Google Reader.
From the Start! interface you can delete bookmarks from the recent bookmarks category and rearrange the bookmarks in your bookmarks toolbar. Rearranging the bookmarks in the right-hand panel only moves them within that space, however, not within your actual bookmark folders.
