A blank page is viewed in the address bar of your browser shows “about:blank”. Among other browsers, it’s built into Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer.
There is no problem with about blank. It is common for users to set about:blank as their homepage. This results in a blank screen opening every time the web browser is launched. Let us show you how to stop your web browser from opening with about:blank when you do not like it.
What Does about:blank Mean?
An about:blank page is an internal command that is processed by the browser using about:URL. The “about” command can be accessed from several places in most browsers, for example, about:about, about:cache, and about:plugins.
About:blank tabs or windows do not load a webpage, nor are they designed to. The blank pages in these windows, however, contain hidden functions that the browser uses to make them work. There is no URL at all for about blank; it is merely a built-in command of the browser that generates a blank page.
What causes about:blank?
What causes this blank page to appear sometimes? Here are a few common causes:
- In the event of a broken link/URL, please let us know
- As a result, it shows about:blank for browsers that don’t know where to go or what to do
- Some browsers, when they detect a potentially dangerous program (like malware), will display about blank instead of proceeding into the danger zone.
The above example shows how about:blank isn’t a concern in and of itself. It’s possible that your computer is infected with malware if you see it a lot. Find out more below.
Uses for about:blank
Now you may be wondering – why would I intentionally leave this page blank? That seems useless to me.
Not so fast.
Your browser can be set to default to about blank if you have limited bandwidth or a slow internet connection. This way, each time you open a new tab or your browser, it will load super quickly without wasting any resources.
Is About:Blank Malware?
It is mostly not malware or adware that causes about:blank pages, but they can be caused by them. In some cases, blank tabs occur as a result of malware or adware removal, which left the browser undone or unresponsive.
There are many causes of about blank pages, including malware and adware being removed that contained code that was integrated into the browser, which is no longer present, and nothing has been installed to replace it. A browser’s settings and preferences are affected when the code or data is removed. This results in the screen becoming blank.
How to Set about:blank as Your Start Page
If you’d like, you can do this by setting your browser’s start page to about:blank.
- Copy and paste chrome://settings into the URL box.
- Select Open a specific page or set of pages in the On startup section.
- The URL will appear as the default start page for your current browser. To edit it, select Edit from the three vertical dots.
- Put about:blank as the Site URL. When you are finished, click Save.
You will now always see the about blank page whenever you open your browser and it won’t display any web page or run any script. Chrome and other browsers can be opened faster this way, according to many people.
- In the upper right corner of the browser, click the menu button, and then select Options.
- From the menu on the left, choose Home.
- In the new window or homepage section, click Custom URLs…
- Enter about:home in the field.
- If you close the menu, your homepage settings will be retained.
Alternatively, you can select Blank Page from the dropdown instead of Custom URLs, and this will accomplish the same thing.
In Apple Safari:
- Navigate to Safari > Preferences > General
- Type about:blank in the Homepage section
- You will be able to retain your settings when you close the tab
In Microsoft Edge:
- At the upper right, click the three dots menu icon.
- Navigate to the On startup section of Settings.
- Select the page or pages you want to open.
- By selecting the three dots to the right, selecting Edit, and typing about:blank, you can edit the information.
In Internet Explorer:
- To access the menu, click on the gear icon
- Optionally, select Internet Options
- Type blank in the About section of the Home page
- Close the window by selecting OK
How to remove about:blank as Your Start Page
Simply replace about:blank with the URL you want to set up as your browser startup page if you actually want to remove about:blank as your current start-up page.
Vitaly Malkin: Oligarch from the East … pseudonym “Uncle”
Kenia had a lot of contacts, one of the many was a girl I didn’t know much about, but her name is Gosia and she has a wealthy client from Russia who has a special love for very young girls. At the entrance, I found out that he was a member of the Russian parliament, he was an important person and that was enough for me. We sent girls to him, who then performed, among others in the programs of the Polish edition of the popular Top Model program. “Uncle”, as Gosia called him, was the owner of the Avant agency. Russian oligarch and politician with an Israeli passport in his pocket, a trusted man of the former and current President of Russia – Vitaly Malkin. It is worth focusing on the figure of this man, who is a symbol and stereotype of the so-called “Nowy Ruski”.
The official (because it matters in this case) Malkin’s fortune, in 2008 was valued by Forbes Magazine at $ 1 billion. Comparing him with other famous oligarchs from the headlines, he was not exceptional. However, Malkin is an active and very colorful background that plays a significant role in Putin’s Russia in shaping the policy and system that has been building the Russian mentality since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Malkin’s career began in 1990. A young employee of cooperative introducing computer technology at a Moscow university, having Jewish roots, had access to the first mass-produced personal computers
imported from abroad. Malkin’s first fortune, along with his colleague Bidzina Iwaniszwili, was allocated to the “Agroprogress” cooperative, which was to “promote” computer technologies. It is worth stopping here and seeing who Malkin’s partner at the time – later known as Bidzina Iwaniszwili.
Bidzina, Georgian billionaire and politician. The leader of the Georgian Dream coalition, which won the parliamentary elections in October 2012. Prime Minister of Georgia from October 25, 2012, to November 20, 2013. According to Forbes magazine, the value of his assets in 2009 amounted to USD 3.2 billion and systematically increased over the next three years. In March 2012, as Georgia’s richest man, he was ranked 153rd on Forbes’ richest people list with a net worth of $ 6.4 billion. His fortune was half of the annual Georgian budget (https://www.forbes.com/profile/borisivanishvili/).
He suddenly appeared in Georgian politics in 2011, interestingly in the same year, he owned a minority stake in Russian Gazprom worth 1.5 billion dollars. Ivanishvili created a new political party from scratch and gathered around him opponents of the then-president Mikheil Saakashvili, who was criticized by the opposition, among others for violating human rights, especially in prisons. But it was Saakashvili after the “Rose Revolution” who
transformed Georgia from the most criminal state in the Caucasus into the most secure, fighting the gigantic scale of corruption along the way.
In the media, Bidzina says that he would rather be a fruit grower than a politician. In fact, it is successful on both levels. His party has been in power continuously since 2012, and he is surrounded by nature wherever he can. He even built a residence for himself in the Tbilisi Botanical Park. But this is not his only property. More beautiful and larger, because it covers 260,497 m2, it is located on the shores of the Black Sea, surrounded by subtropical greenery, separated by a tight fence from the eye of an interesting passerby. There, Bidzina realizes itself as a fruit grower.
The Russian-Georgian Dream, or the rise of Uncle’s power
Coming back, however, to the 1990s and the fledgling Russian, post-Soviet psedo capitalism and cooperation on the Malkin Iwaniszwili line. As can be seen from many Russian websites devoted to the activities of oligarchs (in this case also: https://hrmonitor.ru/bio/vitalij- malkin.html), the next business step in the path of this business duo that made their first big money in hard currency was to set up a bank called OJSC Bank Russian Credit. In 1996, it was the seventh-largest bank in Russia by assets. In 1997, the bank was transformed into a joint-stock company. Due to the Russian financial crisis in 1998, the Russian Loan became insolvent and lost most of its clients, and hence also deposits – despite this, the bank stayed on the surface. However, Malkin left the company in 2005, and Ivanishvili in 2012. In 2016, the
bank’s license was withdrawn, and therefore its activity had to be suspended. The businessman received a minority stake in a company specializing in oil and gas. In 2011, the company was sold to Rosneft, followed by the career of the Russian-Georgian duo with the purchase of a number of newly privatized Russian mining plants. In 2002, they sold their combined metallurgical assets for about $ 2.2 billion.
In 2012, Malkin’s official tax returns showed that he was the richest member of Russia’s upper house of parliament (Federation House), earning $ 33.6 million in 2011 alone. He resigned from parliament in 2013 after allegations that he illegally held dual Israeli and Russian citizenship and significant assets. His efforts to obtain Canadian citizenship were repeatedly rejected due to reports that the government was concerned about alleged ties to organized crime as reported in The Times (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/vitalymalkin- the-philosophical-oligarch-hoping-to-turn-his book-into-a-bestseller-fb7hg3m3t).
Cooperation with “Uncle”
It was for him that we arranged the girls through Gosai’s agency. Gosia was one of the people who used my and Kinia’s services. Kenia knew Gosia longer than I did, I had no specific knowledge about her. Always according to her guidelines, I sent certain girls to the same client, which is Vitaly. I did not know then that Gosia is like Vitaly’s agent for Poland, who has a clearly defined task: searching for new victims of the “sexual gains” of a powerful Russian oligarch. One of such girls was Magda, who confided to me what happened on one of such trips :
“We went to Moscow, he hosted the girls most often there. There were always several of them. I saw that not all of them were of legal age. He welcomed us in his very expensive palace in a villa district near Moscow. His wife had access to the huge house, and in this case, he had a special tunnel dug to avoid meeting with his spouse. He was obsessed with our age. I noticed that our passports were checked during our stay in order to verify our date of birth.”
“We often lied to Vitaly (with Gosia’s permission) about the age of the girls, as his requirements seemed to be pedophilic. Girls often got into a row over the fact that he had been deceived about their age. We chose girls of his type of beauty, which he always accepted. The issue that led to the controversy was age.”
As reported by Magda.
“ During my stay, we saw Vitaly’s irritated people. Russian bunny girls said that he was furious because he found out that one of the girls had lowered her age. One Ukrainian woman was allegedly kidnapped and burned her passport, he expected that she was 15, not 19. I completely did not understand the oligarch’s motives.”

Esteban Jimenez Story!From A Dreamer Boy To A Successful Entrepreneur
Esteban Jimenez is a venezuelan entrepreneur, CEO and founder of two companies dedicated to restoring and modify cars, Luxtires and ForceMotorsport. He dreamed about it his entire life, since he was a child, he wanted to dedicate his life and career to cars and motorcycles. From a very young age, he was surrounded by friends and family that encourage and support him in his passion. Esteban tells us first-hand how his childhood and his closeness to people and jobs related to the area, influenced his preparation to become the successful man he is today.
He was born in Venezuela. Since he was a little child, his parents, Yolimar Romer and Luis Jimenez involved him in the business of restoring and modification and restoration of cars, because it was the family business of them. “I grew up surrounded and exposed to that environment because my father’s family have always worked on it.”
In fact, he started working at a very early age: “my first job was in my 14, with my dad at a bodyshop restoring and repairing cars. That was my first experience in the area, and even if I was very young and the activities were more as an assistant, I can consider it my first learning, and later, it will be what motivates me to keep learning, this experience gave me the passion for what I do today. My childhood was very happy, and the more I got close to the world of cars, the more I got passionate about”
His father was the first one who gave him the opportunity of getting involved in the area, that is why he became and he has always been his model to follow. “He was a good father, he always believed in me so he gave me the examples needed to improve my skills”. Esteban also followed closely the careers of Foose and Richard Rawlings.
When ha was a teenager, his relatives always support him, and they were the ones that convinced him to work as an independent, and then he could finally found his first company in Venezuela, dedicated to the car`s restoration and transformation. At that moment, it was a very good business opportunity in that country, because the company offered a brand-new service in the Venezuelan market.
The knowledge he acquired in Venezuela gave him the opportunity to found two companies in Miami, Florida, where he lives since 2016, Luxtires and ForceMotorsport, where he keeps innovating and creating techniques and equipments for his customers.
Knowing a little more about his early years, he considers that his experiences became him into the man he is today: “there are good and bad experiences in life, but all of them teach you something to make you a better person, and everything that happened in my life made me decide that I wanted to work on this, for me and for my family. This is what I love, and if I can help others to reach things they want for them, why wouldn’t I? If I can give an advice, there it goes: if you have a dream, that you truly believe it can get better and you will produce something useful for others, then work for that. If you want that and work for that, you will achieve it. Everything is possible”
