Hello,

I am currently testing out several personalized homepages. I like Netvibes very much . Today I'm playing around with Google IG, I really wish there were 4 columns (if only this greasemonkey script would work!)

So do you use Google IG? if so, how did you personalize it?

Do you mean what's on our personalized homepages?

Google should allow you to share special links for homepage setups, that would save screenshots :)

Here's mine:

I only use the Multi-search Light module, and I only use that for the Flickr Creative Commons search, actually...

Though now I'm also adding the Talk gadget in collapsed form for when I need it. I don't have the personalized homepage as my default but just switch to it when I need it – can't stand the 1-2 second delay it uses to load (because I'm actually starting my searches from the Google homepage...).

I use Pageflakes (www.pageflakes.com). Way better than others. It's quite handy to make shared page with my family.

The screenshot for my google ig is here:

It is a bit stuffed, but I am not using it frequently (I start my searches from the searchbox in firefox) ; sometimes it's relaxing to play something like ColorJunction with the latest news nearby.

I just wrote an article about Google's personalized homepage (in german) looking into the pros and cons of Google IG:

I'm a bit paranoid about putting things like that online... but here's what I have these days....

- docs & spread
- calendar
- gmail
- gtalk
- bookmarks
- greader
- weather
- w3c validation

I would love to use GTalk but don't have anyone on it cept Tony and Philipp and they're never there! If anyone wants to add me that's great.
