iGoogle gets bad case of widgets
Takes over your desktop
Google's personalised home page, iGoogle, has been updated to support a new "canvas view," which expands a widget to the full iGoogle window.
So far, 16 new or updated widgets that Google is currently promoting support this feature and there are more than 40,000 iGoogle widgets available.
In a press release, Google said that the new iGoogle also moves user navigation from tabs at the top of the page to a bar down the left side. This enables more pages and elements in the navigation, and
iGoogle widgets will be written in the Open Social platform, so apps created for social networks should run on the new portal page.
