Make the HOME link to the 'Your News Feed'

Redirecting the Home Tab is a great idea.
It should be renamed though if you are going to redirect it to the user's News Feed.

===== This is OFF topic which refers to the Home Link in the Breadcrumb ===========
The Home link (in the breadcrumb) need removing !

If someone is in desperate need to get to the From Home Page or the Home Home Page .... then they might want to click the gigantic tabs above the breadcrumb !

With so many people removing the Home Link in the breadcrumb, and many others renaming and redirecting the link elsewhere, I hope the redudant and confusing Home in the bread dies, as it should.

I understand your opinion, but I don't think it needs removing...

On my site I have used the home link to redirect my members to the recent activity of the site, which is something I have been wanting to be able to do in both vB and IPB and yet they both told me that having a activity stream was too server intensive and here I have just what I wanted running under xF.

You are free to remove the Home tab and link if you so choose, but it's a case by case basis.

I am not sure where the 'Breadcrumn mentality gone wrong' statement came from in your response as breadcrumb and the home tab are two different things.

Thank you Jaime. My error.
I thought this was eluding to the Home "section" of the Breadcrumb.
The Home Tab itself is super important !

Post updated.
