Yes it is, it shows me the awesome Fedora logo many times a day
Not really useful. you can put a sticker next to your screen instead, if you want.

As seen before this page is used, to get people on the Planet.
The planet is not really interesting for end-users, and contributors already have them in their RSS readers.
:home will work only on Firefox, where we can actually set

Then we should use upstream default homepage for every browser we ship.
