iGoogle allows you to personalize your own homepage for free. There have been many different personalized homepage web applications over the last year, but I must say iGoogle gives a user a number of options.
There are over a hundred different RSS feeds or widgets to choose from to put onto your desktop.
- Weather - choose as many cities as you like around the world to have a 4-day weather posting.
- Calendars/clocks - a couple of different varieties to choose from.
- To-do lists
- Convert a document to .pdf via email
- Various quotes of the day
- Lots of games
- Spell check
Just to name a few of the hundreds that are available. If you like to have the news at your finger tips when you login along with the weather and other tid bits....give iGoogle a try.
If you don't want to take up a whole page for your iGoogle widgets/modules, you can download the free Firefox add-on and this will display your iGoogle widgets/modules in the side while you continue using your main navigation window (can only be used in Firefox).
