so I launched up chrome and my iGoogle homepage tells me that they are discontinuing the iGoogle service next year sometime. I know it is kinda a clunky homepage, but I really like the high level overview of lots of services. At a glance I can see my calendar, gmail, docs, rss feeds from 6 different sites, weather and a slew of other random updated feeds.
Anyone have a good comparable alternative?
why do you need such a high level overview of so much?
Try Netvibes Aki - I switched a few years back and its pretty good.
There is something you can do to export all of your RSS feeds from iGoogle and them import them into Netvibes (or other).
Such a high overview gives me vertigo, I'd rather visit individual websites
igoogle let you look at stuff but not do anything. Might aswell have pics of sites stuck around the edge of your screen. I found the currency converter / translate useful once or twice but chrome negates them both.
If it is so great, then why are they cancelling it??
I don't get this move,
igoogle was one of the few google apps that I used,
I'll give netvibes a try
aw crap. That's my default/home page - all my lefty newses, weather map, gmail, sciency feeds, some design and humourous stuff, just exactly tailored how I want it.. Why do they have to fuck with shit ?
just think of all the bandwidth $$$ they'll save when millions of home pages no longer have to be fed live info a dozen times a day. always think how it relates to money, as that's usually up at the top of the list of reasons. im talking out my ass tho. what do i know.
