The new iGoogle

Google decided to do some changes yesterday and now iGoogle have come with a new design and some very cool features.

The first thing you will notice are the tabs that are now on the left side. If you have a lot a tabs, this will definetly help and now you can see a snipet of the tabs contents.

All boxes and elements on the iGoogle are now with a more web 2.0ish interface and finally with a font that is much more readble.

The coolest feature of the new iGoogle is the simple fact that it’s now working as a browser. If you click any element inside the tab, it will open a full page with the element details or more functionality. Take the Gmail for instance, if you click on it’s elements you will see a snipet of your inbox with full functionality.

So far the down part of this is that the new iGoogle do not have a min-width and when you are trying to see it from an iPhone it shows kind of odd at the start page.

Anyway is a great change and I would give a 4 donuts on this one.

    I read about a site on John Chow today called http://www.43marks.com – its like iGoogle but better cuz you can add you own bookmarks and the bookmarks can be websites not just gadgets and RSS feeds although you can upload your favorite RSS feeds too. Its free and totally customizable. Plus you don’t have to login to see your bookmars and RSS feeds
