Just got the notice that iGoogle is dying next year.
It's a sad day - been my homepage for years, and put so many other people onto it.

Bummer.

Got the message (http://searchengineland.com/google-to-discontinue-igoogle-once-googles-fastest-growing-product-126593?utm_source=sel&utm_medium=scap&utm_campaign=email) this morning. Also closing up other Google products, but have they have been ramping up their API's for Maps, YouTube, Analytics and others, some merging with Plus local.

I am really going to miss igoogle when it ends. I wonder if there are any addons that create something similar to the Opera speed dial, but displaying live information?

I love being able to (at a glance) check my email, calendar and RSS feeds.

Why is it ending??
Two words - 'Google' and 'Chrome'.

I tried a few alternatives but none as handy as Igoogle. I have two html webpages on one side with Gmail, twitter, bookmarks and facebook widgets there also. I guess It's too early to be looking at alternatives as someone is bound to come up with something. Maybe like...whats it called...that other company...ummmm Yahoo was it ?
