iGoogle Going Away
Posted by Mike Pihlman
The world is changing again!
My comfortable iGoogle homepage has served me well for quite a long time (I moved to Google from Yahoo a few years ago…). I use Chrome (fast, reliable, etc) and have almost totally moved to the Google universe…and I am very happy here. But….
Now I see a banner on my iGoogle home page that says iGoogle is going away. Yikes!
After clicking on the information link, and pondering what this meant….not one to let grass grow under my feet…..I moved on and downloaded separate apps that give me quick access to the Google features I use the most: Mail, Docs (Drive), Chat, Voice, News, YouTube, etc.
As I work, I will add more….Ah….Calendar…see…the more I work, the more I add…how funny. :-)
My new Chrome homepage looks like this:
Alternatively, I can have this page showing my most visited sites show up:
Google Chat and Voice show up in the top right hand corner of Chrome:
Using the NEW WAY
I moved very quickly to using the separate apps to access my Google universe. I suspect since I was already doing this on my smartphone, the move to this way of navigating on my computer was virtually painless.
Time marches on….keep up or fall behind…
