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.*

Oh yeah, you need to go into Google Labs to do this. Forgot to mention it to start with. :eek:

I think it would be nice to have that kind of portal for us at osnn.

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:

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
