Well, what do you know, I go to the SEOmoz Web 2.0 Awards and there is my previously mentioned iGoogle, ranking third in the Start Pages category. I could have tried out one of the others, but since I’ve been talking about customizing an iGoogle page forever, it seemed like the thing to do.
My verdict is that it’s fun, but I wouldn’t say it’s absolutely necessary. Of course, if I find out that I can have all my Google apps available on one tab for my viewing, which is probably possible and I missed it, then it will be come necessary. It was fun looking at all the widgets they have for it, but overall, I don’t feel like this is adding to my life in any way. It’s just something else to look at.
