I'm using Google Chrome as my browser and cannot figure out how to change the startup / home page to Bing. I've tried everything. (Yes, I know I should be using Safari but I don't like the way Safari tabs work and I believe it's slower than Chrome.)

There's no reason you should be using Safari if it doesn't work for you.

Well in my latest Chrome 30.0.1599.101, click on the 3 horizontal bar to get the preferences. Then choose Settings, select "Open a specific page or set of pages" for the "On Startup" option. Now click on Set pages and remove all existing entries and add "http://bing.com" as the only page.

Now every time you start Chrome, you will be taken to the Bing page. Remember, however, that this ONLY on startup. Opening new tabs/windows once started will not take you to bing. If you left your default search engine as Google, you will see the Google search bar and the most recent 6 websites as tiles.

If you switch your default search engine to Bing, you will just get the website tiles and nothing else..
