igoogle hits the right notes!

iGoogle is about to be discontinued! Here's a list of alternatives!

* What is it?

Have you come across igoogle yet? This is where you can customise the google page that you display.

I've had a go at mine and I have found it quite useful as a means of keeping up-to-date with what's going on. As well as the usual stuff like weather forecasts, I've also added a couple of blog search results boxes that automatically search blogs for words that I have previously specified and they then display the results and I can click a link and go and read the blog if it seems interesting.

Obviously, you could use the blog search results to look for anything you wanted to keep up-to-date with, not just work-related. If you would like to have a look at what I've done on mine, just give me a shout and I'll show you!
