How are you handling the upcoming planned deletion of igoogle by google?


So, I spent HOURS today trying to get myself used to not using my igoogle page which google says will be scheduled to be obsolete in November 2013, or so. All I wanted was to establish a google chrome page with a nice little "to do" list on the home page. I changed the theme 5 dozen times and STILL don't like it as much as my igoogle page. PLUS, I was able to access "Sticky Notes" whose icon shows up on my opening page, but you have to click on it to view your list. With igoogle my list showed right on the igoogle page, and that's not the only complaint!

    D. Thanks! I think I know why. It's the application for the mobile devices. From doing my website, I can see that it works better if your have those squares and click on them than having a google web page that's individualized. I'll chk your link.

    I'm looking for a program that will GIVE me money TO manage, Rochelle (tee hee). I really don't know how I got igoogle, but it's so CUTE and I LOVED it. All my favorite quotes are right on the opening page and they change each day. Oh well.

    I realized that this afternoon. It's very weird how we get attached to the way something is laid out on the web. It changes; we change - kinda like life. Thank you Cebu...

    I can't believe that I'm among the few who uses it apparently. How did THAT happen? You're right. I have to get used to something a bit different (That's what my counselor has been telling me for 20 years about my life - HA!)
