iGoogle Replacement – Netvibes

If you are an iGoogle user, one of the many things you’ve been nagged about lately is the discontinuation of iGoogle itself. Google cites the erosion of the product over time, and modern apps running on platforms like  Chrome and Android being better alternatives.  I don’t know about that, but I do know I will need to switch my homepage on my desktop computer before November 1st.

The closest alternative I’ve found so far is Netvibes. I can plop in my email, calendar, blog and twitter feeds, and the layout is much like iGoogle. I might not even miss it.

  1. Well, a replacement would be nice indeed, but it can’t really match the original iGoogle and doesn’t really add value to your startpage… I feel it’s somehow a downgrade from the original iGoogle.

    You you will enjoy the change, I felt a real Upgrade after I start using http://startific.com

    It has a beautiful interface, you will love it!

  2. iGoogle Closed in next month, it is not a good news for iGoogle users. iGoogle is a really beautiful interface. I am also a iGoogle user but now I just change changed my iGoogle to Startme a few days ago and it works pretty well I can put all the same features on the home page that I had on iGoogle. The best benefits of Startme are it is simple and easy to understand.
