A while back I wrote a post listing possible alternatives for iGoogle. As the countdown to iGoogle’s eventual demise on November 1st, 2013 nears, I have tried several random iGoogle replacement candidates. Most iGoogle alternatives had some good features, but nothing quite hit the. They all left me feeling a little displaced and just didn’t give me all that iGoogle has over the last several years.
In walks igHome, developed by Mike Sutton, which can easily be considered as the best replacement to iGoogle offered to date. The site looks almost identical to iGoogle. You can add newsfeeds and gadgets (and arrange them by dragging), add new tabs to organize that content, and also apply background colors or images. It even has a handy Google toolbar and search bar for quick access to your Google apps. There are some small minor differences such as the customize the black bar in the header which through preferences you can modify to include links to your favorite websites.
It even offers an import feature to try and pull in data from your current iGoogle page. I was able to nearly duplicate my current iGoogle homepage through igHome without much work.
