Will you miss the iGoogle homepage, and for those of us that will what are some alternatives?
stylor 2 years ago
One thing about Google is that it isn't afraid to kill off its offerings. The first thing to greet me when I've started my PC for the past 5 years is my iGoogle page, the customizable . It is the easiest way I've found to have the news headlines I'm interested in, my gmail inbox, weather, a calculator, etc. all in one place. Along with my cup of coffee, it is how I start my day. Apparently, not for much longer, though - I got a message that Google is taking my iGoogle away. :-(
Maybe I'm one of the few devotees, and that's why it is going away. Whatever the reason, I will miss it. Are there any other choices out there that allow you to have a customized start page like iGoogle? Sure, there is Yahoo, but frankly, I can't stand it, it doesn't allow the customization of iGoogle and I don't use yahoo email. Any other options that anyone is happy with? And why do you think Google is getting rid of iGoogle?
