    Google offers Personalized Homepage

    Just noticed a new Google feature that rocks big time! A personalized google homepage where you can insert "panels" of Gmail, Quote of the Day, Word of the Day, News from the BBC/New York Times/Slashgot, etc... ALL on your Google homepage.

    Looks like they're moving to a fresh portal look but it's cool that the user has control over how it looks. Check it out at http://www.google.com/ig

    I love it....I had also predicted this many times. With everything they have and the things that they are going to offer, the regular search page wasn't going to cut it anymore.

    Look for small additions until we realize Google has done a Yahoo

    Thanks

    You're right. I didn't quite fancy some of their other offerings (i.e. web accelerator) but I can't complain though. Gotta admire their efforts for coming up with new products every now and then. I forsee the personalized page becoming a one stop portal for anything and everything in the near future. Like i mentioned earlier, Google scores in making it "personalized" where you can add/remove panels. It's all about the user init!?
