Google homepage gets Personal

Posted on Friday, May 20 2005 @ 12:34 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Google unveiled a new feature to let users set up a personalized Google home page. The feature will allow users with a Gmail or Google Account to create a home page with different modules that can be dragged and dropped across the page.

This includes e-mail, news headlines, weather reports, maps, movie schedules and web search. Users will also be able to display RSS feeds on their home page.

Google Personal home page

You can drag and drop individual sections to rearrange them on the page, and add or delete as many or as few sections as you like, whether you want just the latest Google News headlines or every last bit of info you can fit on the page. One you've created your personalized homepage, you can click "Classic Home"* to switch to the standard Google homepage, and switch back by clicking "Personalized Home."
The feature is still beta and is available at Google Labs.
