    Google is finally offering something similar to My Yahoo! and My MSN. It's a personalized home page that lets you add news, weather, local movie times, stocks and your Gmail inbox. A lot of people like the simplicity of the Google home page, but even with it personalized it's still pretty simple.

    Here's a screenshot of mine.

    *The feature can be found in Google Labs.*

    I like it because it allows me toe easily see if i made some money with the stock market, and also it allows me to find out if i have mail or whatnot.

    I'll stick to the default simple look. :)
    It's Google's distinguishing feature from all the other search engines and the reason why it's still my homepage.

    Using Firefox, I never visit the Google page to perform a search, so using it as a homepage would be nothing more than aesthetically pleasing. It wouldn't really be functional for me and I'd just move on to whatever page I was going to visit. Now there's something there I can take advantage of. Ultimately it is just a matter of preference, though. :)

    Once you've chosen the content for the page, you can drag and drop the different categories to arrange them how you like. :up:
