Yes, they are definitely making a comeback. However, I always find that having these pages as start pages always prolongs browser startup time. So i'd rather have about:blank as a start page and have handy bookmarks for these start pages should I wish to visit 'em smiley

I like start pages, they have gone a long way since the beginning for sure, but I feel the same as freznel, they slows down your browser, so I would rather have them on demand.

My choice from the above list would be netvibes.

EDIT: ooops, sorry for the bump.

I use www.google.dk as my start page - it's very fast to load, and my browser is always started with "win+r->http://whatever.url", clicking the firefox icon (which usually means I want google), or double-clicking an URL from a mail message smiley
